TAKING the stress out of stock handling is the aim of all in the industry.
A specialist training course featuring Boyd Holden has been scheduled to run at “The Vale”, Temora later this month.
The course will cover livestock behaviour, stock handling technique and sheep yard design.
It will be hosted by Marty Moses who is principal of Moses and Son on his property, “The Vale”, which is the dedicated home of the MerinoLink Merino Lifetime Productivity Project trial site.
Mr Moses said the vision for the yards was to play a role in industry education and showcasing the latest in sheep handling technology.
The new yards have been part of a wider development program on “The Vale” involving fencing out tree lines, wildlife habitat areas and erosion, plus the installation of new watering points.
The Vale hosts the MerinoLink Merino Lifetime Productivity Project flock of 780 ewes and is one of five trial sites across Australia.
The low-stress training course will run on November 28 at “The Vale”, Temora.
