  • Working with the Pressure Zone

    This is part 3 of a 5-part video series on Dairy Stockmanship created by the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (UMASH).

    Dairy Stockmanship is a practice which promotes positive animal handling. Stockmanship is beneficial for both the dairy cows and the handler by decreasing stress, increasing milk production and reducing potential injuries on the farm.

    These five videos demonstrate stockmanship principles when working with dairy cattle. They include:

    – Using Predictable Animal Behavior to Increase Milk Production
    – How a Cow Uses Her Senses
    – Working with the Pressure Zone
    – Moving Cows More Effectively
    – Making the Milking Parlor a Happy Place

    The videos are an educational resource intended for farmers, ranchers, farm employees, veterinarians, human resources training staff and those involved with worker health and safety training/education.
