牛仔分类牛群的工作

有时,驱赶牧群回牧场后的分类作业会耗时好几天;1979年的96牧场 (96 Ranch) ,需进行分类的牛只高达700800只;牧场的惯用类别可分为带着小牛的牛妈妈、干牛 (dry cows:即不需照料小牛的母牛)、小母牛 (heifers:乳牛) 刚满一岁的牲口、已断乳的小牛(刚跟妈妈隔离开来的小牛)、阉牛、走失的牛只(来自于另一个牧场的牛只)及几只用来交配用的公牛。您认为牛仔们会如何处理属于其他牧场的牛只?

 
Sometimes the sorting process takes place a few days after the cattle drive. In 1979 on the 96 Ranch, about 700 to 800 cows were sorted. The ranch's usual categories are cows with calves, dry cows (cows not mothering a calf), heifers (milk cows), yearlings, weaner calves (calves recently separated from their mothers), steers, strays (cows from another ranch), and a few bulls for breeding purposes. What do you think happens to the cattle that belong to another ranch?
