Staff Training Manual & DVD
‘Livestock Handling Practices for Marketing Center Staff’ is a great resource designed as a training tool for new employees, especially those unfamiliar with handling cattle in an auction mart setting, and can be used as a refresher for experienced cattlemen. Your employees will increase their understanding of safe and responsible livestock handling, therefore reducing workplace injuries and supporting animal health.
While the practical, easy-to-follow manual and DVD were produced in Saskatchewan, the best practices described are valuable at marketing centers and assembly yards across Canada.
The complete training resource is available for $150.00 plus GST (includes shipping and handling).
Clips from the DVD are accessible on our YouTube channel.
