Cattle Industry Convention 12One of the main organizers of the Cattlemen’s College here at the Cattle Industry Convention is Tom Woodward, a cattleman from Texas. I interviewed Tom during a break in the session today. He talks about why they chose this venue this year and the importance of the program which is focusing on the low stress handling of cattle.

Cattle Industry Convention 13Today at the Cattle Industry Convention it was time for the Cattlemen’s College. This year it was held (still going on actually) at the National Western Events Center. They decided to have some live demonstrations about cattle handling. I watched the “Use of Stock Doges in a Low-Stress Manner” session. These are some well trained dogs.
