The Jackson and Swain County Extension received Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Grant Funds through the regional Resource Conservation and Development (RC & D) for the purchase of cattle working equipment. This equipment will help you and your herd if used properly because cattle producers have long recognized the importance of proper livestock management. These practices impact cattle health, welfare, and productivity as well as enhance beef quality and producer profitability.

Chute - Burrell FarmCattle can be gathered with this equipment to perform routine husbandry procedures such as veterinary care; weighing; sorting; weaning; and transportation to and from pastures and livestock markets. Handling procedures can be made safer for the cattle and caretakers and cause as little stress as possible if cattle handling facilities are properly used. The “Beef Quality Assurance’s – Producer Code of Cattle Care” is that producers take pride in their responsibility to properly care for their cattle, which includes providing facilities that allow safe, humane, and efficient movement and/or restraint of livestock while working with them.Chute-Burrell Farm
