Ranchlands Down Under: Low Stress Stockmanship

July 28, 2016

Sam is an apprentice on Chico Basin Ranch. As part of her apprenticeship, she spent eight months working on a cattle station in Australia.

This week the crew from Gregory Downs and myself joined two other station crews at Aramraynald station for a low stress stockmanship clinic. The clinic had some classroom time going over positions and yard layouts before we went out into the field to practice what we learned. It was refreshing to see seasoned stockman still finding areas to improve on.
