In this video, Philipp Wenz shows how the "Low Stress Stockmanship" method can be used to achieve stress-free cattle handling.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Successful cattle handling
What problem does the tool address?:Dairy cattle herds are getting bigger and bigger, and the form of husbandry is becoming more extensive. This leads to problems in cattle handling. For example, if the animals have to be taken into the hoof stand.
What solution does the tool offer?:The method uses the cattle’s subtle reaction to movement, similar to shepherd dogs, which instinctively use it when rounding up herd animals. Moreover the method avoids beckoning, pulling, hitting and shouting altogether. Instead, the cattle are driven, guided and stopped by the increasing and decreasing pressure. Humans approach the animal at a certain angle and guide it into the desired direction by specific forward and backward movements and the animals are not touched.
