The objective of the Safe Handling of Cattle Program is to provide support to cattle producers for the purchase of neck extending headgates, cattle squeezes and crowding tubs, locking headgates (dairy installation) as well as scales and scale heads. The use of this equipment has been proven to reduce the stress levels of animals and well as increase the safety of the handlers.
The objective of the Elite Sire Program is to provide support to cattle producers for the purchase of genetically superior animals which are physically and structurally sound as well as have EPDs above breed average. Incentives will be provided for breeders to have their bulls genetically evaluated.
