Strip Grazing

J has been strip grazing the hay field this fall. We have a one strand electric fence that he puts across the field to let the cattle have enough grass for 3-4 days. Then he moves the fence to let them have a little more.
Once they get use to this the cattle act pretty crazy. When they see J they rush to the fence. Therefore, we have to move them out of the field before he can move the fence, then let them back in.
They are getting to the point where I don't even scare them anymore.
