so I take it you have no corral and you just dumped her out in a make shift pen with no other cows in there ?
You may want to think about not messing with Brahman cross cattle till you have a corral that is built to handle them. I always say they are great cattle BUT THEY AINT FOR EVERYONE.

You will still have issues most likely when you pen or need to doctor.
She has learned that your make shift pens won’t hold her. Little pressure and she will show you her deer impersonation.

Keep feeding her and the others a couple of times a week and she will settle in nicely at your place.
