My sister was chief photographer, as well as keeper of the gates and principal pivot person. She was just generally in the right place
at the right time all the time to help keep the flow of cows running smoothly.

The cows were driven about a mile from where they left their calves, and are locked in a corral with hay bales in bale rings
available for their eating pleasure. This will be their home for the next three days. The calves were later turned out on fresh grass.
