Handling livestock safely

January 30, 2015

Did you know that multiple serious livestock handling injuries can be caused by a single agitated animal? To reduce your risk of a livestock-inflicted injury while on the job, keep in mind the following safety tips.

Reducing Stress to Reduce Risks

Animals that are handled gently experience less stress and therefore pose significantly less danger to their handlers. In addition, animals that do not experience stress are also able to fight disease and maintain a healthy weight more easily.

Putting Safety First

The smooth operation of our facility depends on three things: livestock behaviour, proper use of corral design and the skill and technique of the handler. Staying on guard and using the techniques discussed above will help you to stay out of harm’s way.
