Hi I was wondering what everyone does to teach a calf to set up ?

Everyone does it differently...
I start my calves really young I just always make them set up when they stop. So, when they are pretty good with the halter you can start turning around and setting them up every time you stop, they learn really quick.
Some of my old show heifers (now cows) just naturally set up now. Head up and everything. They've associated it with the show stick and brisket rubs.
