Stress-free stockmanship

About Stress-free stockmanship

80% of sick leave on dairy farms is caused by accidents with cattle. These accidents can partly be prevented with more stockmanship training. Here is still a big blind spot in dairy management.

Chasing cows causes fear, lameness and lower milk production. This is bad for cows and bad for business. Scared animals are unpredictable and that’s where the trouble starts. Farmers that handle cows quietly, have less accidents. Staff that’s in control, will have cows in the milking parlor smoothly and rapidly. Stress-free stockmanship gives everyone on the farm more pleasure and satisfaction.

We teach how to look and think from the cow’s point of view. How does she experience things? What makes her insecure? What are risk areas, where you need to be extra careful? We show you how to handle and move cows without any stress.
