Back in the late 50's my dad bought about a 100 springer Brahmer heafers. When it came time to round them up after they dropped calves we discovered that 4 men and a teenager (me) on horses were not up to the task.
After studying on the problem for a few weeks, my dad went to Texas and came back with 2 trained leapord dogs. 3 men and the 2 dogs got the cows and calves up in two days!
Old Red would kill any stray dogs that came around. But he wouldn't bother any of the neighbors dogs. He always went for the back of the neck.
