Event description

Description

"We all want control of our cattle - we don't step outside in the morning looking for a wreck. Yet working with cattle can commonly deteriorate into an exercise of force and fear to get them to do what we want. Once animals are upset - afraid or mad - then getting the job done in a safe, efficient and stress free manner is virtually impossible. Once the cattle are in this state the people handling them aren't far behind. "Then everyone is having fun." The majority of cattle handling problems stem from instinctive human behaviours. It is imperative that producers become aware of these tendencies around livestock so they can avoid the unintended consequences of their actions. Once people are aware of and in control of their counterproductive instinctive behaviours then they are ready to learn a new set of cattle handling skills that will enable them to get the job done in a calm, controlled, safe and efficient manner. "

Whether it's calving, branding, turning out or pulling bulls, weaning, treating animals or simply moving them to fresh pasture, cattle handling can be stressful and hectic. If you would like to learn a stress-free way to handle your cattle that will make these jobs easy and trouble free, plan to attend one of Dylan's powerful, hands-on workshops.

Topics covered include:
- Training your herd to drive
- Good herd movement
- Gaining control of herd direction
- Controlling herd speed
- Coordinating people for a successful move
- Moving livestock through gates and dealing with obstacles
- Processing and loading livestock
- Sorting livestock

Participants of this two day workshop will spend some time learning the theory of low-stress cattle handling and the majority of the clinic practicing with the cattle in both pen and pasture situations.

Observers are also welcome to attend!

Participant spaces are limited so contact us soon to secure your spot!

Light lunch is included both days.
