Be Safe Around Cows
Livestock are among the leading causes of agricultural injuries. The Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (UMASH) addresses this risk with new stockmanship resources.
UMASH encourages people to "Be PALS" with cattle:
Consider the Angle of your approach
Think about your Location relative to the cow
Slow the speed of your movements
A fact sheet, posters and five-part video series, available in English and Spanish, demonstrate stockmanship principles when working with cattle. Topics include:
How a Cow Uses Her Senses
Working with the Pressure Zone
Moving Cows More Effectively
UMASH is a multidisciplinary collaboration of five leading research and health care institutions. The animal handling resources are only one example of how we address existing and emerging occupational health and safety issues in agriculture. Visit our website at umash.umn.edu.
