Low-Stress Livestock Handling Technqiues

Handling skills are essential for managing livestock. Good livestock handling skills can minimise stress and injury; reduce time and effort required to move animals; reduce stress for both people and animals; make working with animals safer and more enjoyable; and improve productivity and meat quality. 

Throughout 2012-13 AMPC has facilitated the development of programs in low-stress livestock handling techniques to cattle and sheep stock handlers at abattoirs. Using the principles of ' no touch and no noise', handlers have been introduced to the theory underpinning stock handling and welfare, as well as receiving practical training in operating yards.
