Play Cattle Herding Online
Description: Herding is the act of bringing individual animals together into a group herd, maintaining the group and moving the group from place to place - or any combination of those. Some animals instinctively gather together as a herd. A group of animals fleeing a predator will demonstrate herd behavior for protection; while some predators, such as wolves and dogs have instinctive herding abilities derived from primitive hunting instincts. Instincts in herding dogs and trainability can be measured at noncompetitive herding tests. Herding is used in agriculture to manage domesticated animals. Herding can be performed by people or trained animals such as herding dogs that control the movement of livestock under the direction of a person. The people whose occupation it is to herd or control animals often have herd added to the name of the animal they are herding to describe their occupation (shepherd, goatherd, cowherd). These -herds may use herding dogs to assist them and a competitive sport has developed in some countries where the combined skill of man and dog is tested and judged in a Trial such as a Sheepdog trial. Animals such as sheep, camel, yak and goats are mostly reared. They provide milk, meat and other products to the herders and their families.
Game walkthrough: You are now the cattle herder. You are on a horse, and your job is to guide the cattle into the Pen, which is located at the bottom center of the field. There will be a lot of cattle and hence a lot of work for you, but remember, the faster you get all the cattle into the pen, the more bonus money you will get. The cattle will turn away from you, so be careful. The closer you are to them, the faster they will move.
Game instructions: To guide yourself in order to herd the cattle, you will need to use the keyboard arrow keys. The up arrow key is to giddy up; the down is to slow down; the left and right are to turn you counterclockwise and clockwise. On the top right corner of your screen you can see the cattle remaining to herd and the time and time bonus. Now let’s see your herding skills! Have fun!
