Benefits of Quality Stockmanship 

The benefits of using quality, low-stress stockmanship are limitless. By using these techniques and the natural instincts of livestock we can influence how they respond to our positioning, pressure and or release. In learning how to feel and communicate with livestock, you will be able to move the animals more humanely, productively and efficiently. This is beneficial for both the human and the livestock. Through this livestock centered teaching, the animals will have reduced illnesses, increased weight gain, higher pregnancy rates, better milk production and there will be a reduction in injuries to both livestock and human.

Tom Curtin is a Master Stockman and an Excellent Teacher.

Tom has traveled and taught clinics for over 25 years. This coupled with his knowledge, ownership and handling of livestock provides Tom with the tools to teach others something he is very passionate about. Tom has been fortunate to be around and work for some of the most famous ranches of the west. Through his experience and experimentation Tom feels that the combination of his horsemanship knowledge joined with his stockmanship skills could help both the small operation and or the large ranch.

Tom is certified by the Beef Quality Program (BQA). BQA has an educating program that helps producers identify management processes that can be improved.

Tom has numerous videos he shows in a classroom setting to help demonstrate how these stockmanship techniques work in many different situations. These videos along with Tom’s live demonstrations on foot and on horseback are a tremendous in helping people understand these low stress stockmanship cattle handling techniques.
