Dairy Farmers and Employees Gather for Stockmanship and Safety Training

Dairy farmers and employees gathered at Feldpausch Holsteins, LLC in Fort Morgan for the second session this past Thursday for a half-day presentation, the first of two seminars, covering stockmanship, cattle handling, and transportation safety.

The seminar started with an engaging and informative classroom presentation by Libby Bigler, Colorado BQA Coordinator, on the basics of cattle handling and livestock transportation standards and guidelines. Attendees joined Dean Fish, Ph.D., stockmanship clinician outside, for hands-on demonstrations on cattle handling techniques. Producers received training in best management practices to help improve their operation and learned firsthand the principles of Beef Quality Assurance.

Thanks to Erik Mohrlang and the team at Feldpausch Holsteins for hosting this event. Stay tuned for a video training resource being developed from the materials presented during the beef and dairy sessions!

The seminars are made possible through funding from the High Plains Intermountain Center for Agricultural Health and Safety Community Initiated Small Grants Program. Established in 1991, HICAHS conducts research, education, and prevention/intervention programs to improve the health and safety of those working in agriculture, forestry, and fishing in the High Plains and Intermountain Region, including Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.
