Animal Handling

Understanding how the senses and behavior of livestock differ from humans is essential for safe and successful farming.

Learning and practicing positive animal handling can help create an awareness of human/animal interactions and in turn help to keep farmers, farm workers and the animals safe, healthy, and injury free. To help in this process, UMASH has created a series of resources for positive dairy and swine handling. Each section offers a training series in both English and Spanish, among various other resources.
