What others have said about the course:
Actually your day was perfect timing for me. I have not progressed very far with my cattle and was becoming somewhat disgruntled. I have now decided to try a smaller breed. Again thanks so very much I find you very inspiring.
I think you are amazing and you have helped me understand so much about handing the cattle here. In fact I put it into practice straight away handling the cattle here, and my Unclewas very impressed it made him so happy. ( maybe even a little proud ).

I would like to thank you for the Cattle Care Course on Saturday. What an excellent day! I have never attended a course anywhere ever where so much practical information was given, every thing that I needed to know was covered. Excellent, Thanks very much . Lynne Bower April 2011
We really enjoyed the course and it covered most things for us. We really liked the flexibility in that you covered everything people asked and appreciated you showing us how to apply ear tags when it wasn’t on your program. Greg and Janet Cumberland 2010.
