So you’ve read Whit Hibbard’s series on Low-Stress Livestock Handling Process about all the things you need to incorporate in your thinking process when you’re moving animals as you become a better stockman. But until you see someone doing it, it can be hard to imagine what you ought to do. That’s why Whit shares this video.
Whit starts by reviewing some of the principles and then he shows how those principles are turned into action using examples of moving both sheep (and some cows) through crowd pens and chutes. What I like best about this video is that Whit describes what the stockman is doing as he does it in set ups that many of us are familiar with. You’ll even see them working in a Bud Box.
If you haven’t seen this in action before, you might have a few “Ah ha!” moments. Enjoy!
