Let them pen her with his cattle. I bet she will stay bunched with his. Some people only pen once or twice a year. Their cattle are not used to people.

I agree. Let him get her penned with his cattle. If they are pretty spooky, they will be very familiar with working with that kind of cattle. Granted maybe you wanted her gone, sooner, but at this point what difference does it make. They get them in, if they are taking some to the sale, let them put her on the truck with theirs and put her in your name at the sale.

We had 3 from a neighbors get in with ours. Pretty spooky. He wanted to come get them out and we said NO. They could stay there til we got ours up, no charge, as we did not want them running our cattle. There aren't any catch pens there, we set up a portable pen when we need to get them. By the time we got ours up, after having the pen set up for 2 weeks, they were coming in with ours just as easy as could be, and it was no problem to call him and tell him when we had them in.

We had had a bad experience with someone's cattle getting in our place and them coming in and running our cattle trying to catch theirs. Had one calf get hurt and a cow came up lame. That ended it. If we have any get on someone else, we ask permission to go in and look, and ask how they want to deal with it. We have paid for the cattle to be there grazing if the owner wanted it... not going to be responsible for someone else's cattle getting stirred up or hurt.

A good cowboy won’t run the whole heard trying to catch one cow. Generally the cow in question is seperated pretty quick and the rest settle down. Problems usually come up with one person trying to work alone or if they miss a few times and the cow keeps trying to get back with the herd.

I agree ''his land, his rules'', and he already told him the way it is going to be so what could a sheriff do.

The guy doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to get the cow back to where it belongs.....I say this because it’s still in his pasture and he hasn’t taken action himself to remedy the situation. That is where the talking to the Sherrif might help defuse any upcoming problem. Course nothing is certain at all. :2cents:

I know you are frustrated. Just hang tight. If a neighbor has a cow that gets on my place, I tell them let me pen them when I get mine up. If it is August, I am not going to pen unless it is an emergency (too hot). A bull is a different deal. I will pen the cows as quick as possible and help you load him.

I guess if she is in his pasture eating his grass and he does not care then what's the concern sounds as if you are making money on her. I had two in my place for a month eating my grass, range meal and mineral they belong to guys that are cowboys that could have had a group of people rope them anytime BUT I told them not to be in there running them with horses. They were not hurting anything and I told them I would let them know when I had them penned. they went in the lot every week for a month and ate cubes with my cows but I did not have time to mess with them till a couple weeks ago. when I had the time I fed every thing and sorted them out and left them in the lot called a told him they were in the lot he could go get them out and he did . but I sure did not want him or anyone else in there messing with my cattle I can handle these Brahman cross cows like a bunch of puppy dogs chasing a bone but some one else get in there messing around they might have cows scattered over two counties.
If she has settled in why not try and sell her to him, may make him a good cow.

I agree, leave her there until the man is ready or he asks you to forcibly come get her. I had a young wild one fresh from the sale barn get on the neighbors place and he was adamant about leaving her. Took six months but he called one day and said he had her penned. She had calmed down and turned into a nice animal that I still own. Ugly as sin but luckily her calves usually take on their daddy's traits.

tbh I didn’t even think about selling her to him he’s a big cattle guy so it didn’t really cross my mind she’s good heifer in the pasture she doesn’t like being penned lol. But I can’t have at her my place cause all of mine are puppy dog gentle.
