Cattle handled quietly in well designed facilities had much lower heart rates compared to cattle handled roughly in poor facilities (Stermer et al., ). The amount of stress imposed upon an animal during handling is greatly affected by its previous experiences (Grandin, a, a, b and . If the handler is very upset or stressed, it is likely that the cattle are stressed as well. Calm cattle are much easier to sort, and move through a working facility. Removing distractions from the working facility is also a key point. Often cattle will balk or refuse to move past objects that we humans may not even notice.
On a farm infectious diseases may occur by introducing infected animals, introduction of cattle in the incubation period, carcasses of animals that were not removed properly, vehicles, equipment.

Cattle Domestication: from Aurochs to Cow. The link between wild cattle and humans has existed for thousands of years. Five species of wild cattle have been domesticated approximately in the last years (Helmer et al. ).This domestication process has provided many benefits to humans, from meat and milk, to draught animals (see also Chapter 3 in my book for more details). Cattle Handling & Loading facilities: • Non slip flooring (can be dirt). Less than 2% falls under the NCBA guidline • Prod score – not over 10% • When cattle leave squeeze chute, should be walking or trotting (75%) (NCBA) Cattle will be kept in pens with adequate room to behave naturally; i.e., move freely, exercise, and with.

Standing this behavior can be very useful in designing cattle-handling facilities. 5 The flight zone (comfort zone) is the animal’s personal space. The flight zone may be five to 25 feet for tame cattle or feedlot cattle and feet for some wild cattle. The flight zone increases whenFile Size: KB.
Farm biosecurity protects the health of your cattle herd by preventing the introduction and transmission of disease agents to your farm. Endemic diseases, those diseases native to U.S. cattle, can be an economic drain on cow herds if not managed properly.
Taking common sense precautions to minimize the risk of diseases is the best investment you can make. These can be purchased from commercial manufacturers. Higher skill levels are needed when constructing on farm to make sure the sweep gate maintains a narrow gap throughout closing.
Funnels are commonly observed with facilities constructed on farm. The triangular shape of funnels when the gate is closed can cause problems with cattle crowding. AHI has the following advice on how to reduce the source of infections from the farm environment: Reducing stocking density in critical areas such as calving pens and calf houses will reduce Isolation facilities for cattle on the farm.

The book list on this page contains all my favorite cattle farming books, organized by category. Humane Livestock Handling: Understanding livestock behavior and building facilities for healthier animals - by Temple Grandin.
Manual of Stockmanship - by Steve Cotes. Good cattle handling facilities are necessary for all cattle operations, regardless of the number of cattle. Cattle handling facilities are used to restrain individual animals during management practices (vaccinations, health treat-ments, pregnancy diagnosis, etc.).
Good facilities help cattle handlers collect performance data, which is critical. Individually identified cattle, sheep and goats attending a show are exempt from the six day standstill provided that they are isolated for six days (in a Defra approved isolation facility) from all non-show animals on their resident holding before they attend the first show.
They can then move from show to show without triggering a standstill and return home between shows and move to a. Farm Facilities: A small size flock of sheep/goats can be managed even without elaborate facilities.
For medium or large size flocks more permanent facilities should be considered according to the required management jobs. At a lead farm following facilities are suggested beside the animal sheds for the feedlot fattening.
Keep an isolation area that is intended for only sick animals. Meet the standards for pen, stall, or bedded area space per animal in your care. Always handle sick animals last. Vaccinate farm dogs and cats against rabies to protect humans and animals. Consider vaccinating livestock, too. But, hopefully this discussion will lead you to more investigation about good, safe and efficient working facilities for small farm beef cattle production.
For more details, consult your Tennessee Master Beef Producer Manual (Chapter 9; written by Clyde Lane) or contact your local UT Extension Agent. The first consideration when building cattle working facilities is location.
Facilities should be conditions and be near the cattle for easy movement into the facilities. In addition, some operations, due to their physical layout, may be better off with more than one set of working facilities on the farm. The proper design, construction and operation of a cattle handling facility is important to ensure safe working conditions for animals and humans.
Understanding the inherent behavior of cattle, plus working them slowly and quietly, will reduce injuries and help make an operation run more smoothly and efficiently (Hubert et al., ). The objective of this study was to evaluate associations between herd-level factors and the isolation of Salmonella in calves from dairy farms in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and New York.
Study farms were conventional and organic farms enrolled without regard to previous history of Salmonella infection.
Herds were sampled at 2-month intervals over a 1-year period. The high density of cattle farms in Belgium is reflected in a mean distance of only km to the nearest cattle farm. For mixed farms this distance is only km (Table 1).
Also pig herds and sheep premises (from professionals and hobby keepers) were located nearby, with minimum distances of only km (data not shown). Find and compare top Farm Management software on Capterra, with our free and interactive tool.

There are many different structures which can be used for a dairy milk farm, and these include free-stall, tunnels, composite barns, dry lots, tie-stall facilities and dairy sheds.
Other dairy milk cow structures include milking parlour, sick/isolation pens, calving boxes, crowding pens, sorting corrals, working chutes & gates, and squeeze gates.
The section on facilities includes two simple designs used most commonly for low stress cattle handing. The information and awareness are helpful for all ages of cattle and types of operation. Cattle can be one of the most rewarding livestock to have on the farm. If you are starting a new farmstead venture, or if you’ve been thinking of adding a few head of cattle to your existing farm, here are several things to keep in mind, along with five breeds worth considering.
Climate. Cattle can be relatively easy to keep.On-farm handling facility. The on-farm handling facility was designed for bison, and holding pens for grain finishing were equipped with solid sides. The chute system allowed animals through to a squeeze chute that had solid walls on one side, but was visually open to other holding areas on the other.
All holding areas were open to the sky.- Thrifty ideas for planning barn renovations. See more ideas about Cattle barn, Barn renovation, Cattle pins.
