Written by Temple Grandin with Mark Deesing, “Humane Livestock Handling” is a 230-page, soft-cover blueprint for low-stress cattle handling. The Colorado State University animal-handling and behavioral guru offers advice in four sections: Part I — grazing animals, from their perception to the factors of genetics and learned behavior; Part II — livestock handling from pasture to harvest; Part III — how to create a low-stress handling system, from planning and design to construction; and Part IV — facility plans for ranches, fencing, feedlots and beef plants. Chock full of illustrations and diagrams, it lists for $24.95 and is available from major booksellers.
