Geoffs Life After Work !

Roma Cattle sale yards

This was an awesome experience ! Spectators are allowed to mingle in this amazing maze of cattle holding stalls Just to listen to the auctioneers was an experience and to watch potential bidders doing their secret signals to accept a price !! Each stall was perfectly handled by cowboys on horses who skilfully manoeuvred the cattle to others stalls.Each cow is “branded” with a paint number on a very long pole and as they are sold they are in turn colour coded with a different colour paint !!Staff use a long pole also with a plastic bag to move the cattle along (its hard to believe how docile these animals are ) Just to hear the 1000,s of cattle mooing was a sound I wont forget in a hurry>Id even say the cattle were contented !! All the bidders (and auctioneers) wore AKUBRA hats (told it takes 27 rabbits to make one hat.NO the rabbits didnt make the hats !!) I was compelled to buy one ! and for all you Pomms? Yes I will wear it !!

Yehawwwwwwwwww !!
