    Nice article!
    Stockmanship, especially low-stress livestock handling (the subject of this article) has been essential in many of our range management projects, especially re-kindling the herd instinct to facilitate strategic grazing management and prevent livestock-wildlife conflicts.
    One suggestion I have is that the diagrams would be improved if they incorporated the “pressure zone” around the “flight zone,” as defined by Smith (1998) and in the glossary of the Stockmanship Journal (http://stockmanshipjournal.com/glossary/).
