Halter is the primary method of restraint used in cattle. The halter can be made of cotton, nylon, twine, etc. It is mainly used to control the head and once the head is controlled, the animal can be handled with relative ease. The proper placement of the halter is important and it begins with making sure the lead is placed on the left side of the animals head. A simple rhyme to help remember how to correctly place the halter on the head is a follows; "the part that draws goes under the jaws." This leaves the top part of the halter to go over the poll and behind the ears.
