When working animals through a chute, getting them to move forward can be a challenge. How-ever, understanding animal behavior can make it easier, says Temple Grandin, assistant professor at Colorado State University. For example, if you want to have animals move up in a chute, you should walk quickly past them in the opposite direction. In so doing, you cross the animal’s point of balance at the shoulders and move out of their view. This causes the animal to move forward.
