"Cattle are responsible for about two-thirds of all injuries caused by farm animals. Researchers at Oklahoma State University found that one-half of those beef producers who sustained an injury while working cattle felt the primary cause of the injury event was human error. This videotape provides practical, on-site advice on how to avoid becoming an injury statistic. This tape will examine the best techniques for moving and working cattle safely, understanding the animal's flight zone and how cattle are likely to react to common situations. We will take you on-site to a typical working facility and examine its good points and those areas needing improvement." The video is about 13 minutes long.
The film provides a good overview of Temple Grandin's philosophy on low stress animal handling. It also covers the basics of operating squeeze chutes safely. The video quality is not ideal: It is too grainy to project on a large screen, but it is acceptable for viewing on a computer monitor. I plan to have students watch it on their own as part of an assignment for a distance-based college course in agricultural safety. It would be more useful for teaching if it included a transcript for study.
