Cute Pate On cattle Handling
PATE: My grandparents, your grandparents, used to deal with animals on almost an hourly basis. Now our mornings are spent on a computer or a tractor so our basic animal handling skills have gone away so we now have to focus on those rather than it’s just a natural part of our way of living.
Like the Massai have learned from generations of handling cattle, it’s all about pressure
PATE: There’ three kinds of pressure we use with working with animals. We have a driving pressure, we have drawing pressure we have a maintaining pressure. It’s all about teaching people how to put the proper amount of pressure on animals to get the job done but not to stress them while we are doing it. Animal welfare, animal handling is a big part of our future, the better your skill level and the better your better your attitude gets with working with cattle the more good days you are going to have.
