Cattle Muster

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

Thousands of cattle are regularly mustered from vast paddocks on Outback cattle stations in Australia. Helicopters, bull catchers, quad bikes, motorbikes and horses are used to round up the cattle and move them to the yards where they are usually divided up and loaded for export or sent back to the paddocks to grow some more. Young men and women, known as "ringers", carry out the hard, dusty work.
