Cattle Handling

Cattle handling is a skill that takes time to hone. The goal of handling cattle is to minimize the stress on the animal. Prolonged stress can make an animal prone to illness. Handlers have a unique appreciation for cattle; they understand the behaviour of animals, allowing them to intuitively predict animal behaviour and move them in a way that leverages the natural instincts (flight zones) of cattle, thus reducing the stress on the cattle.

Government of Canada invests nearly $2 million in migratory bird monitoring and conservation programs

Migratory birds are an important part of Canadian biodiversity. Despite their great adaptability, science shows that migratory bird populations are declining, and this has negative impacts on ecosystem health. The Government of Canada is committed to halting this loss of biodiversity by strengthening protective measures for migratory birds and supporting work with many partners, including other governments, Indigenous peoples, and non-profit organizations.
