Cattle movement benefits from quality stockmanship
The Western Producer
With the fall run in full swing, I’ve had the opportunity to be at a number of feedlots where they were processing fall calves. As I watched the processing crews, I was impressed at the stockmanship that I witnessed. There was no shouting, everybody was calm and quiet and animals were moved through the system calmly. There is no doubt that good facilities played a role in how well the cattle were moving through the processing barns, but a great deal of the credit had to go to the processing crews themselves.
