Tip number 3 Moving the entire herd

Sometimes you will want to move the entire male or female herd at one time. To make this go very quickly, I just get a metal pan, put some of their grain in there, and just rattle it a bit. It is amazing how well they can hear, and once they associate the rattle with grain, they will come, and very quickly. I have also clapped my hands together right before I rattle the grain, and it took no time at all for them to associate the clapping of the hands with the grain. As soon as I clap my hands now, they will all come flying because they know something good is about to happen. I also do this when I want them to move from one pasture to another. This works whether you have boys or girls to herd and is a big time saver.
