steers Cowboys go automated FORT WORTH Tex UP The burly cowboy with the continental snap brim cap waved his whip gunned the motor of the motorbike and roared off in pursuit of a dozen steers Across the way a man in a frame building shifted his earphones stared at a television set and scribbled from time to time on a report sheet And in a partially filled arena television re corded the jottings of still a third man as he tran scribed responses to the steady drone of an auc tioneers appeal The scene unfolded in the Fort Worth stock yards where closed circuit television and gasoline fumes are part of the trend to automation There wasnt a horse in sight as stockyard work ers went about the routine handling of the daily live stock receipts Competition and integritys the same but ev erything else is changing so fast you cant recognize it from one year to the next said manager John Lewis A number of yards have gone to wheels The wheels in this case are light motorcycles brought in to speed the movement of cattle along the brick alleyways winding through the maze of wooden livestock pens Men on horses once provided this service but in recent years the chore was performedon foot until motorcycles were adopted The biggest advantage has been the time saved plus the wear and tear on your men Lewis said There are a lot of miles traveled every day up and clown those alleyways Lewis said the motorbikes have spurred a new enthusiasm among the fellows although there still are those who figure cattle and motorcycles dont mix Although horses still are used in many stock yards Elmo Klingenberg the superintendent said they are impractical here because of feeding costs and the slippery brick alleys movement of cattle is essential since televised auction proceedings have helped
