    I totally agree with you on the touching. Im just doing what my neighbor suggested because he has raised cows. I have no clue what Im doing. I do want them calm enough to come and just let me stand there and not get trampled. Those Jerseys got really pushy and I had to carry a stick to push them off with. Last night I did just that, just stand there and let them eat. I stood right next to the feed trough. There is one that is still really flighty that if I were keeping them she would be the first to go. I dont want to make them pets, just keep them in the pasture and not run thru it like that first one did. He is going to bring her back over this weekend so I can be there to keep and eye on her to make sure she doesnt test the fence and try to get out again. I may put her in the little corral with the others for a couple days to make sure she isnt a flight risk<g> and then turn them out into the pasture.
