WHEN KNOWLEDGE RUNS OUT, PANIC & VIOLENCE SETS IN

Many stockmen have lost their cool trying to move stock through a gate or load them on to a truck because they lacked the necessary knowledge, skill and patience to work with the four basic instincts of animals that explain what animals want and why they behave the way they do.  In the heat and the dust, tempers can fray, frustration can set in and many an animal and worker have been abused as one failed attempt followed another. ___________________________________________________________________________________ Recently,... [Read More...]
