Milk Bones to T-Bones: Stock Dogs Love Cows Too

Milk Bones to T-Bones: Stock Dogs Love Cows Too

10/16/2015 9:49:00 AM/Categories: General News, Today's Top 5



(Billings, MT) With a history that dates back 10,000 years ago during the Neolithic age, humans have used dogs for herding. Let’s fast forward to the 21st century.  Humans still use dogs for herding but instead of using them for the sole purpose of gathering wild game during hunts, “man’s best friend” is now a fixture of America’s ranches tasked with helping ranchers gather their cattle and sheep.

The story of the stock dog is a fascinating one that resonates with both town and country people. They’re not only a very valuable asset to the rancher but their fun to watch as they do their job.

This year, the NILE Stock Show in Billings, MT featured a “Stock Dog Cattle Handling Demonstration” featuring Wheatland, WY rancher and stock dog handler Juan Reyes. 

 

Northern Ag Network’s Russell Nemetz got a first hand look at Juan’s stock dog demonstration at the NILE.


Juan Reyes is also a founding member of the National Cattledog Association (NCA) and is the immediate past president. To learn more about the NCA and next year’s NCA National Finals in Meeker, CO, visit www.nationalcattledog.com.
