Cattle handling 2012: Curt Pate visits Nebraska towns July 9-12

Nebraska Cattlemen is hosting Cute Pate to conduct a series of Low Stress Cattle Handling Presentations in Nebraska the week of July 9-12.

Pate has improved handling practices and strives to create sustainability for the cattle industry through cattle handling presentations, which he has done for more than a decade. Low-stress handling provides a direct benefit to the producer. Improved handling alleviates unnecessary stress to the animal and allows the producer to move cattle more efficiently and effectively. That means time and time means money. His lifelong experience in ranching adds credibility and enables him to communicate his methods effectively to cattle ranchers throughout the country.

“It is great that Nebraska Cattlemen are working to educate and train those involved in the cattle industry,” Pate said. “I look forward to these four days in Nebraska.”

Events are:

July 9: Northeast Community College, Norfolk

July 10: Garfield County Fairgrounds, Burwell

July 11: Thayer County Fairgrounds, Deshler

July 12: Lincoln County Fairgrounds, North Platte

All producers are invited to attend this free educational event. There will also be a Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) training at each location. The BQA training begins at 4 p.m. with the meal and live cattle presentation to follow. It is only $20 to become BQA certified, which is good for a two-year time period.

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to have Curt talk to cattle producers to show them the benefits of low stress handling,” Lederer said.
