The emphasis is on learning from- and with each other, complementing each other with knowledge in both theory and practice. With respect for people and animals. A continuous improvement process for everyone.
After all, nobody is all-knowing and nobody is perfect. Moreover, society is constantly changing insights.
For more details around my way of working, please refer to:
I AM NEITHER A "COW WHISPERER" NOR A "PIG WHISPERER"
For that I am far too down-to-earth. What matters to me is daily practice and reality.
My knowledge is based on years of practical experience in caring for and working with farm animals.
Cattle, other herd animals and pigs are NOT stressed because we work with them.
They become stressed and disobedient because of the WAY we work with them.
If we treat them right, they will obey us.
Using violence to move herd animals and pigs obviously leads to nothing.
Therefore, my advice to anyone who works with herd animals and pigs:
"HANDLE HERD ANIMALS AND PIGS SLOWLY, WE DON'T HAVE TIME!"
It is important that everyone who works with cattle, pigs and other (herd) animals knows how these animals react to their environment.
If you know and master this, you will be able to work with animals efficiently, safely, quickly and in an animal-friendly manner.
Anyone can learn the Low Stress Stockmanship method!
Proper handling of animals means having an eye for detail.
Violence or demonstrations of power lead nowhere. Everything happens with calm movements, without hectic.
If you handle your (farm)animals hectically, you have not understood the right (farm)animal signals.
The emphasis is on learning from and with each other, complementing each other in both theory and practice.
A continuous improvement process for everyone.
Very interesting for herdbook members, hobby farmers, compound feed producers, agricultural schools and anyone interested in the Low Stress Stockmanship method.
Hands-on, so you can apply the knowledge directly to your own animals.
DAY SEMINARS: THEORY AND PRACTICE FOR GROUPS, OR INDIVIDUALLY ON YOUR FARM.
For anyone who wants to learn Low Stress Stockmanship on the farm, but also for hoof trimmers, compound feed producers, veterinarians, inseminators, pig farmers and slaughterhouses.
The practical demonstrations and training will take place on the host farm. The exact program content is discussed with the client in advance. Following a demonstration, the participants can also put the theoretically acquired knowledge into practice themselves after consultation.
TRAINING AND COACHING:
Are you looking for continuous improvement in the efficient, safe, quick and animal-friendly handling of your farm animals?
Would you like to train new employees in the daily handling and treatment of your herd animals?
Then this training approach and accompanying coaching is the right method for you.
The practical demonstrations and training take place on the host farm. The exact program content is discussed with the client in advance. Following a demonstration, the participants can also put the theoretically acquired knowledge into practice themselves after consultation.
BUSINESS ANALYSIS AND CONSULTING IN ANIMAL HUSBANDRY:
From pigs, calf rearing to dairy and beef cattle in the barn or on pasture.
From cows in the milking parlor, in the milking robot, in the claw treatment box to the treatment of slaughter animals in the slaughterhouse.
SLAUGHTERHOUSE OPERATIONS ANALYSIS:
Slaughterhouses are increasingly in the spotlight. The community's call for permanent camera surveillance during the slaughter process is getting louder and louder.
Low Stress Stockmanship Europe believes that more needs to be done to optimize the slaughter process, train the staff (who are involved in the slaughter of animals in your slaughterhouse) and raise their awareness.
The focus is on working with the slaughterhouse operator, to further optimize the slaughter process.
From the arrival of the animals at the slaughterhouse to stunning and bleeding.
LSSE (Ronald Rongen), is registered by the Dutch Central Organization for the Meat Industry (COV) as an approved and registered animal welfare specialist.
