In general horses are about the only large livestock you are going to get your hands on to lead. Most other livestock will have to be hearded or roped. Pushing heard animals back into a group tends to calm them down some. If you can heard them into a corner and let them calm down, you will have better luck getting them to go where you want. For single or small groups(3-4) depending on how much help you have roping is an option but as tweva said before roping panics the animal so if you’re not on a horse roping can get dangerous fast. Roping will scatter a large heard. They will run away from the roped animal so you will have to heard them up again after each animal is roped. Hearding them along a fence line to an open gate is a better and safer option.
