Cattle & Sheep Handling Facilities a Common Approach – Uist

Event Details

Address: Hosta Hall, Uist

Handling systems for cattle and sheep are often labour intensive and a mis-match of old and new. Dr Simon Turner, an expert in handling systems, will present recent research on cattle behaviour and how that affects how systems are designed for improved animal welfare, reduced labour inputs and better health and safety.

He will then lead a practical session at Hosta Township cattle handling system and at the Tigharry Township cattle system. Janette Sutherland, Skye SAC and Angus Ferguson, SAC Balivanich will lead discussion on funding support and sheep handling systems.

For more information about this event please get in touch with our helpline and ask for Angus Ferguson.
