Halter breaking an Angus Heifer to lead is a process that begins months prior to actually entering the show ring with a successfully trained animal. There are other techniques for halter breaking an Angus heifer to lead, but this is the most tried and true technique that seems to work well for most heifers.
Training an Angus heifer for showing does involve specific steps and techniques, but one of the most enjoyable activities that help to build trust is to pet her and feed her daily. She will become accustomed to your touch and voice through daily petting and grooming.
The goal with Your Angus Heifer in the Show Ring is to have her deliver the best performance and behavior possible. By the time you and your heifer enter the show ring for judging, you’ve both been training for several weeks for this very day.
