The way we have been tie breaking for years is running them into our chute alley and tying them up with neck ropes only! Also feeding them. They can only go back and forth within the alley if they try to fight! After only a few days this way and having them get fed every time it doesn't take long we can put them in a smaller pen and tie up still with just the neck rope and feed them. Gradually we incorporate the halters and granted every animal is different in how they react to it all but we have no raw noses or poll area and you'd be surprised how much fighting they don't do when their necks are the only thing holding them back. The whole idea of breaking is getting them to understand what pressure is and how at the right time its realeased. We have mature herd bulls who cause they were started as calves this way you can literally throw a rope around their necks and lead them anywhere.....
