Forgett the myth that sheep are stupid or cows are dumb, our trainers have proved quiet the opposite and have proved that these animals are infact as intelligent as a dog or horse. Once the trainer has earned the animals trust anything is possible! Film Livestock Australia were responsible for training the sheep for Parampount pictures ‘Charlottes Web’. These sheep work at liberty (no restraints), come when they are called, stay, lay down, Spanish walk, open gates, go to a mark, the list is endless. Sheep are highly intelligent animals given the chance to learn.
Film Livestock Australia has also liberty trained cows. Our cows come when called, lay down and go to a mark. Oour cows may be ridden and are very quiet around the set. Our recent cow work can be seen on the HBO production ‘The Pacific’. In one particular scene a cow is ‘shot’ and lays down. Our cows also did the Prime Super Superanuation fund advertisement. An actor had to sitt on our cow backwards and handcuffed!! Red deer and rabbits were trained for US feature Knowing and were trained to work at liberty and go to a mark and work with actors. Goats, chickens, donkeys the list is endless we are able to supply and train almost any farm animal.
