“Beef and Dairy Animal Stockmanship” is AABP-AVC pre-conference Seminar 5 and will be held Wednesday, Aug. 18, at the AABP-AVC meeting in Albuquerque, N.M.

The human element has tremendous influence on the health, welfare and performance of production animals. It makes logical and economic sense to train workers in stockmanship to create positive interactions with livestock. Since all human contact with animals shapes their subsequent behavior, learning body language to communicate with livestock enables the stockperson to work safely, effectively and encourages animals to express their true state of health. Successful human-animal partnerships are based on mutual trust, respect and communication. The stockperson's attitude, behavior and skills significantly influence job satisfaction as well as the behavior, welfare and performance of production animals.
