Our Experts

Over untold generations, the art of stockmanship has developed its own language: silent, subtle and based on the animal’s natural habits and instincts. Applied to cattle handling, it has a direct and positive effect on the animal’s behavior and overall well-being. The handling of cattle — how we communicate with them — is important to cattle health.
