Lately many producers have been coining the term “low stress” cattle handling. In the early 90’s Blake heard Bud Williams speak at a Holistic Management International conference in Albequerque, New Mexico and eagerly invited Bud to come and work with him and his staff on cattle handling if ever in Canada. A short time later Bud showed up at the Shipwheel office and continued to spend 12 hours a day for weeks showing, teaching and explaining his methods of moving cattle to the employees of Shipwheel. At Shipwheel, we will forever be grateful for the knowledge and skill that was passed onto us from Bud Williams. We have taken that cattle handling knowledge and have been using it heal depressed immune systems and maintain healthy animals.
