How Should I Behave Around Livestock?


You Should…

Use a calm and cautious manner; announce your presence in advance and move slowly and deliberately.

  • Be patient; do not get angry--it leads to accidents.


You Should…

  • Dress correctly; wear sturdy gloves and safety shoes or boots with composite tread soles to protect the feet and give the best traction; avoid flapping garments.


Livestock…

  • Startle easily; something as simple as a puddle of water in the walkway can cause them to a react suddenly.


Livestock…

  • See differently than humans; they have nearly 360 degree vision and can see everything around them except directly behind their hindquarters, but have trouble judging distance and do not see color, making them particularly skittish in unfamiliar surroundings.


Livestock…

Have sensitive hearing and can be frightened by loud noise; high frequency sound can hurt their ears.


Livestock…

  • Protect their young; be careful around newborn animals. Most male animals are dangerous; use extreme caution around them.
