Low stress cattle presentation coming to Nebraska towns
Nebraska Cattlemen is hosting Curt Pate to present a series of Low Stress Cattle Handling workshops in Nebraska the week of July 9.
Pate has improved handling practices and strives to create sustainability for the cattle industry by doing cattle handling presentations, which he has done for more than a decade. Low stress handling provides a direct benefit to the producer. Improved handling alleviates unnecessary stress to the animal and allows the producer to move cattle more efficiently and effectively.
That means time and time means money. His lifelong experience in ranching adds credibility and enables him to communicate his methods effectively to cattle ranchers throughout the country.
“It is great that Nebraska Cattlemen are working to educate and train those involved in the cattle industry,” said Pate. “I look forward to these four days in Nebraska.”
One of the presentations is in North Platte July 12 at the Lincoln County fairgrounds.
All producers are invited to attend this free educational event. There will also be a Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) training at each location. The BQA training begins at 4 p.m. with the meal and live cattle presentation to follow. It is only $20 if you wish to become BQA certified, which is good for a two year time period.
