Temperament not assessed in Paddock
The heifers moved quickly when being worked through the yards and crush when pressure is put on, however settle once pressure is released. These heifers have had very little work done with them as weaners and as a result they behave as previously mentioned above. As the video shows the heifers are settled and are mostly not fussed when in a larger yard with people walking around them. More yard work and tailing would benefit these heifers.
