Shorthorn cattle were once triple-purpose beef, dairy and draft cattle, but since 1948, there have been two main types of registered Shorthorn cattle: Shorthorns raised for beef and Milking Shorthorns.
Bernese Mountain Dogs enjoy draft work such as cart pulling. They are intelligent and easy to train, making them good choices for dairy cattle drivers or watchdogs.
The Rottweiler is easily trained, courageous and loyal, which allows it to excel at many farm tasks. Its farm talents include trailing, guarding, herding, cattle driving and watchdog duties.
With Australian Cattle Dogs’ ardent desire to please and their extreme intelligence, they are obedient for cattle herding and other work around the farm. They are natural guardians and eager companions.
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi dog breed is used on the farm in cattle herding. Its protective and devoted nature makes it a good family dog in addition to a farm guard dog.
