Curt Pate will present his popular “Stockmanship and Stewardship” program at Miles City Livestock Commission, April 21, at 1 p.m. Market co-owner and manager Rob Fraser said that the livestock market setting will permit Pate to conduct “hands-on” demonstrations of effective, humane handling methods which reduce the stress on livestock and their handlers. Pate, who has been conducting similar programs for over 10 years, will also meet with the market’s employees. They will discuss the best handling methods to use from the time cattle are unloaded at the market until they’re loaded to leave.
Fraser said that while “the vast majority of livestock producers and market employees use proper handling methods every day, there’s always room for improvement. This program will let anyone who comes in contact with livestock brush up on their handling techniques.”
