John and Mary Kelly’s Kelly Brook Farm at Euroa was the venue last week for an interesting workshop on livestock handling and yard design put on by Gecko CLaN Landcare group.
The farm’s large shed made a perfect classroom as presenter Brian Cumming gave his take on the best way to approach cattle and sheep when doing tasks such as moving, drenching and transporting them, including a Power Point presentation, followed by a practical demonstration out in the stockyards.
Mr Cumming raised some laughs when he presented a couple of slides detailing the best ways to get injured around stock, such as putting your arms in the sides of the crush and standing with your back to cattle while speaking on the mobile phone ‘‘like all the agents do’’.
The workshop was over-subscribed and landcare facilitator Kerri Robson said another was planned in coming months.
