  • Understand animal behavior when handling beef cattle

    Having proper handling facilities, understanding animal behavior and following safe handling techniques can make the chore of moving cattle less stressful for the animal and producer.

    When moving cattle, the position and movement of the handler is important.

    Cattle have a flight zone – the area around them that they do not like for people to enter.

    The size of this zone varies from animal to animal. The animal will move away when a person enters this zone and that trait can be used to move them where you want them to go.
