County Farm Bureaus in District 4 are offering a free low-stress cattle handling demonstration Saturday, July 10, with well-known clinician Curt Pate. The event, hosted by Big Horn, Carbon/Stillwater, Sweet Grass and Yellowstone Farm Bureaus will take place from 8 a.m. – noon at Billings Livestock Commission.

Pate will share his extensive knowledge on treating and moving cattle in a safe and efficient manner, including a demonstration of low-stress sorting, processing, loading and more.

“We’re very pleased to offer this cattle handling demonstration for free to anyone interested in moving their cattle in a calm manner that uses the animal’s instincts,” noted District 4 Director Casey Mott, a Custer rancher. “If you own cattle, whether it’s five to 500, spending time at BLS the morning of July 10 will improve how you handle your livestock. Our District Farm Bureaus saw this as a great way to improve safety on the ranch of both people and animals, as well as improve your bottom line with calmer animals.”

There is no need to register, just show up ready to learn. Questions? Contact Casey Mott, 307-751-4749.

Billings Livestock Commission is located at 2443 N. Frontage Road in Billings.
