Welcome to Dairy Stockmanship™
Welcome to the DairyStockmanship™ website. Although dairy operations can vary widely in size of operation, as well as in housing and parlor design, the fundamental interactions between cattle and people are quite similar. These fundamental interactions are independent of the size of the dairy as well as the type of housing system. Anyone that works with cattle should receive dairy stockmanship training. Understanding basic stockmanship skills is only the start, dairy workers need to approach every interaction as a chance to learn and improve their stockmanship skills. Anybody can be a person that works with cattle. It takes a commitment to communication with the cattle to be a stockman.
