Cow Handling Facilities Farming Note

As housing and handling of animals is one of the main opportunities for injury to occur on farm, having well designed cow handling facilities in place is strongly recommended. Poor set-ups can also be very stressful for the animal and this can have a negative effect on welfare, health and productivity. Are your cow handling facilities maximising cow flow and minimising stress?

This Farming Note covers:

  • Working with cow behaviour
  • Optimising cow flow
  • Handling facilities
  • Possible layouts

Issued October 2007.
