Low Stress Stock Handling workshop - Crocodile
On 6-7 September Roy and Karlene Shephard of Crocodile Station hosted a two-day Low Stress Stock Handling course with trainer Chook Kealey.
The twelve participants learnt methods to keep cattle calm during mustering, in the yards and for loading on trucks, which then keeps weight on the cattle for market. Participants were amazed at the immediate response of the cattle by using these methods in just two days.
The workshop was funded by Reef Trust 3, through the Reef Alliance. The Reef Alliance Program is a partnership between agricultural industry, regional NRM bodies, and facilitated by the Queensland Farmers' Federation (QFF), with a common goal of securing the future health of the Great Barrier Reef.
The Reef Alliance Program is funded by the Australian Government and delivered through the Reef Trust.
