    I had the distinct pleasure of working with Dr. Burt Smith, Pasture and Livestock Extension Specialist, while I was the NRCS State Grazing Lands Specialist in Hawaii in the late 1990s. Burt was just finishing his book “Moving “Em – A Guide to Low Stress Animal Handling.” I personally watched Burt move a flock of sheep merely using hand signals – that’s how proficient he was in understanding and utilizing quiet handling techniques. I highly recommend his book to anyone interested in learning the finer points of quiet handling of animals. The Forward of the book, by the way, was written by Dr. Temple Grandin.
