Sing to the cattle (!!!????)


Wiliam Holden asks confederates to sing to the cattle , as a good way to lead'em.

What's the truth about that


When an animal can't understand , it means the master is not wise .

Cattle get jumpy sometimes. When they are tired, or thirsty, or sometimes for no reason at all. At such times a small noise can stampede them. Singing to them distracts them, gives them something to listen to, and can have a calming effect on proddy cattle.
