Nebraska Cattlemen is sponsoring three "Low Stress Cattle Handling" demonstrations, Aug. 20, 21 and 22.

For more than a decade, Curt Pate has improved handling practices and strives to create sustainability for the cattle industry by doing cattle handling presentations. 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. His abilities conducting both horsemanship and stockmanship demonstrations have made him a popular clinician both on the national and international scene.
