Join HSGA for a Low Stress Livestock Handling Workshop! — November 8-9, 2013

by HI-GLC on October 3, 2013

We’ve been waiting for a long time to sponsor a professional, low stress livestock handling workshop! Don’t miss out!

This *very* hands-on workshop features Mark Orchard and Willy Twitchell of Brigham Young University (BYU) in Idaho. Both speakers come highly recommended, are very knowledgeable in the subject of low stress animal handling, and together have 20 years of experience in teaching principles of animal behavior.

The workshop will also include an update on recent research on sheep and goat related issues by Matt Stevenson of CTAHR Extension.

This year’s workshop will be on November 8 and 9th, 8 am – 5 pm both days.
Early registration is due by October 25 and is only $65!!
Late registration is $85 so don’t delay!!!

As usual, lunch and refreshments will be provided both days.

In addition, you’ll receive a free copy of Steve Cote’s Stockmanship book, endorsed by Temple Grandin and others. Steve is also a leader in the art of low stress livestock handling, and his book is designed to help you after the workshop, when you’re practicing the techniques at home. Stockmanship is provided to each participant courtesy of Pacific Islands Area NRCS. For an electronic version of Stockmanship, click here.

The workshop will feature some in-class instruction and demonstration, and hands-on application a field setting. Be prepared with field clothes, hat, jacket and a chair if you need.
