Are Your Cattle Handling Facilities In Good Shape?
How safe are your cattle handling facilities? Are they in the state of repair that will allow the cattle to be worked easily and with reduced potential risk of injury to both you and your cattle?
Producers working cattle should be aware that there is the possibility of personal injury, especially if the facilities are not in a good state of repair. Most cattle are normally calm but, when brought into an unfamiliar environment and frightened, they are capable of causing injury to the workers and themselves.
