Cattle handling - Keep calm & keep moo-ving with Joep Driessen

Join us for this webinar exploring the ‘dos and don’ts’ of cattle handling with Joep Driessen, a Dutch vet known as ‘the cow whisperer’ because of his ability to listen to cows and understand their body language.

If you or your team get frustrated when cows won't move up a race, had close calls with a cow lashing out or are irritated when tasks take too long when handling cattle, then this webinar is for you.

You'll develop a better understanding of cow behaviour, the impact of your actions and improve cattle handling skills to save you time, reduce stress on both people and animals and make your farm a safer place to work.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Understand how cows see and feel
  • Adapt your behaviour around cows
  • Make handling cattle easier and ultimately quicker
  • Improve overall stockmanship of livestock on your farm
