How do you get cattle to move?
Walk towards them or to their side and they will move for you. If there's a pet bovine that will not move away if you walk towards it, then you can best get it to move by getting it to follow you in the direction you want it to go. Shouting, whooping, or making any loud noise may also get cattle to move, albeit in a bit of a hurry!

Thanks for the feedback!
The men that move cattle from place to place are called ranchers or cowboys. They live on ranches.
most people that i have asked said 'sheepdogs'
A cattle drive
One is because the farmer needs to allow the grass to regain control and grow taller while the cattle were moved to the already regained pastures. Another might be becaus…e a fence was down and the farmer didnt want the cows to get out of the fence. There could have been a sick cow and the farmer didnt want the hole herd to get the disease These are some of my reasons
A cowboy, a cattle herder, a farmer or a shepard.
To herd or drive.
It would usually take them about 3-5 days to reach the concentration camp. The cattle trucks would be very squishy because there were approximately 100 Jews on a truck.
To strike it rich!
Cattle need to be moved from one pasture or grazing area to another because they, just like any herbivore, tend to eat/trample the grasses down where they have grazed, limitin…g their ability to get more to eat for themselves. Cattle tend to consume a lot in a short period of time (if you leave them in a small paddock for a little while), and thus need to be moved before they overgraze that particular area. The amount of feces in that particular paddock can also determine whether you need to move your cattle to a fresh paddock or not. Cattle are more likely to overgraze an area (but not nearly as bad as sheep and horses are) if they are not moved soon enough. Overgrazing leads to decreased pasture production and eventually desertification if nothing is done to correct these bad grazing practices. It's not the hoof action that is the problem, as this is actually very good for the grasses (provided that not too much "hoof-action" is done on the plants, turning the pasture into a mud-wallow), but the way that cattle tend to come back to a favorite spot over and over again. This leads to decreased root biomass in the grasses, and also exposes the soil to erosion. Other times "they" need to move cattle is when it is time to process them for vaccinations, deworming, tagging, etc., and when cows need to be preg-checked and body condition scored prior to fall weaning and going onto winter pastures. Sometimes cattle need to be moved to a different pasture if there are major repairs that need to be done to a fenceline, or if a new permanent fenceline or water pipeline needs to be put in.
Ranchers hired cowboys to gather and drive the cattle east. The expansion of the railroads shortened the cattle drive, enabling the cowboys to simply drive the cattle to the n…earest rail stockyard.
Probaly the Goodnight-Loving trail (not joking, the last names of the two guys who founded it were actually Goodnight and Loving)
