Help Please! How to keep cattle away from my home

Post by Tenaj » Sat May 18, 2019 6:23 am

We have cattle 10 ft from my yard and it is really discussing. What can we do to keep them further away? Any ideas are welcomed. Thanks

Move the fence, or move.

Nope not moving and the fence could be moved 10 ft but that is about it. I am never moving. My family will own this property till the end of time. I will put up a Trump wall soon. I just thought perhaps people that know a lot about cattle here could tell me some tricks to get the cattle to move further down his property and keep them away from this area.

Not a snowflake, do you have cattle living in your backyard, perhaps you like the fresh scent of cowshyt. Might be your favorite cologne too. you might be the one that steps in it then walks in your home with you cowshyt shoes all over your home. Not me!

Your situation is understandable. Lots of folks have activities near their home that are a nuisance.

If you are unwilling to move and the adjoining property owner is not in violation of ordinances, you will have to mitigate the problem from your side of the fence.

Yes I agree Bright Raven, thank you for your kind answer too. Perhaps the question I should have asked is what can I do from my side of the fence to mitigate cattle being so close? I was looking for experienced people to tell me if there are scents, plants, etc. cattle do not like so they wont want to be around.

1. Don't trespass
2. Don't violate any law. He has rights.
3. If you are luring his cattle away, that is your right as long as you don't trespass, endanger his cattle or violate his rights.
4. Don't put or throw anything onto his property.

Do you have any ideas how I can lure the cattle away? I do not want to endanger the cattle, they are the innocent bystander in this situation. I understand they are cattle and eat grass and crap for a living and I do think they are quite cute. I just don't like the fresh scent of the crap they make. If I can keep them from this one area near my yard with a lure without harming them that would be the ideal answer. Do you have any ideas? Or does anyone.

I would not try to lure them away. I doubt it will work on a long term basis. They will still enter the pasture where they are a nuisance.

If it is that important, meet with the owner. Maybe rent a buffer zone.

Thanks, all things will pass I am sure. I will put up my Trump wall, at least it might break the wind a little better. :)
Have a great day.

The next thing the landowner will do is put a pig pen next to you. That's what people get that can't mind their own business and move to the country and bytch about the sounds smells and view

I take your question seriously.

I assume you reside in a location where you share a fenceline with a cattle producer and his cattle are a nuisance because of their activities. That is entirely understandable.

May I ask, who was there first? It really has no legal bearing but the question is a curiosity to me.
