Working cattle

This weekend I got out of the city and stayed with a friend to help out on his cattle farm. There was no mobile phone access, no internet, not even a landline close by and although it was a short time it was so nice to get out in the paddock (as a small animal vet this rarely happens). The nice thing is that my friend, a senior small animal colleague, uses anaesthesia when castrating cattle (not everyone does). The cattle pictured are very heavily sedated and not unwell.
