In herds of suckler beef cows the relationship between humans and animals is an important issue concerning animal handling.
Unlike dairy cow herds, suckler beef herds are less used to close contact with humans. Due to low management input animals
may be difficult to handle during treatments like medical care, routine handling or at slaughter house.
