Ans: Halter breaking is used to train and accustom young cattle, or other large animals, to wear a halter and lead rope. The halter is a type of headgear designed to be worn by the animal around its head and typically includes a rope or strap that can be used to guide or control the animal’s movements.

Q4. What is the purpose of halter breaking in cattle?

Ans: The purpose of halter breaking is to teach the animal to accept and respond to pressure on the halter and lead rope, enabling handlers to control and lead the animal safely and efficiently. During halter breaking, the animal is gradually introduced to the halter and the sensation of pressure on its head, neck, and nose when the lead rope is used to guide its movements.
The training process typically involves gentle handling, positive reinforcement, and patience. It is important to proceed at the animal’s pace and avoid causing unnecessary stress or fear. Once an animal is halter broken, it becomes more manageable and easier to handle for various tasks, such as leading, grooming, veterinary procedures, and transportation. Thus, effective halter breaking in cattle is a must to handle them properly.
