Low Stress Cattle Handling Clinics for Beef Producers in Seneca Falls, New York

Low Stress Cattle Handling Clinic

Mark August 6, 2014 on your calendar to attend a special Low Stress Cattle Handling Clinic led by renowned Montana rancher and stockmanship instructor Curt Pate and sponsored by the NY Beef Quality Assurance program. These special clinics focus on handling methods that improve gathering, penning, chute work and hauling of cattle. Emphasis is placed on ways to increase cattle performance by reducing handling stress and how the principles presented have an economic – as well as “quality of life” – benefit when applied in one’s operation.

Cattle Handling is a key component to Beef Quality Assurance and is important for both cattlemen and the industry for three key reasons:

  • Welfare: Improved cattle handling leads to improved public perception; less injury to handlers and cattle; less carcass damage and trim loss.
  • Performance: Increased efficiency; increased gain; less investment in veterinary intervention; less investment into facilities and repair.
  • Quality of Life: Improved profitability; sustainable family operations; enjoyment of the beef farming lifestyle.

For all BQA Certified producers, the clinics will count for the required continuing education credits for BQA re-certification.

The clinics are free of charge and sponsored by the Beef Checkoff, New York Beef Council, New York Beef Producers Association and Cornell University Extension.
