The Texas AgriLife Extension Service will host a hands-on cattle handling workshop on Friday, July 8, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the Stonewall Chamber of Commerce Arena in Stonewall.

The workshop will cover a variety of cattle-handling topics, including cattle behavior, corral design, and principles of cattle handling.

The program will include hands-on cattle-working instruction and demonstrations from 1-3 p.m.

Program registration will be from 7:30-8 a.m. with presentations immediately following.

Stress in livestock is one major cause of economic losses that can be managed on the farm or ranch, said Decky Spiller, AgriLife Extension agent for agriculture and natural resources for Gillespie County.

Spiller said primary workshop instructors will be Dr. Ron Gill, AgriLife Extension program leader and co-founder of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Stockmanship and Stewardship Program, College Station; and Dr. Rick Machen, AgriLife Extension livestock specialist, Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center, Uvalde.

Gill said techniques demonstrated at the workshop take advantage of animals’ natural instincts, and can actually make the job more enjoyable while enhancing cattle productivity and value.

Attendance is limited to the first 50 responders, so RSVP before Friday, July 1.

The cost is $100 per person, and lunch will be provided. Checks should be made payable to Gillespie Chuckwagon.

For more information, call 830-997-3452, 817-233-3164, e-mail r-gill1@tamu.edu, or visit http://effectivestockmanship.com.
