Ever needed to individually capture free-ranging cattle outside of mustering time?

These two new papers from Jordan Hampton et al. may point you in the right direction:

  2.   Welfare impacts of helicopter darting cattle. Read here…

Both papers have come from the project: CaLF -Demonstrating the Productivity Benefits of EcoFire  (a collaboration between the Australian Wildlife Conservancy, Rangelands NRM and CSIRO)
