Welcome to the Safe and Low Stress Cattle Handling course. This course builds on the fundamental concepts of low stress cattle handling and includes additional information about how to stay safe while working with cattle. Low stress cattle handling (referred to as quiet cattle handling in the Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Beef Cattle) uses knowledge of natural animal behavior to move cattle, rather than trying to move them by force. One of the course’s goals is to connect what farmers and ranchers already know with a few new ideas that they can implement on farm to increase their safety and enjoyment when working with cattle.
