Booking Dates for 2017 Low Stress Stockmanship Schools

     Unlike most other low stress stockmanship schools, these are designed to let the students see, and take part in changing cattle behavior from grazing in small groups, to grazing together as a herd. This means the schools are five days long, At the end of the school, everyone has enough of a grasp on the different ways to start, turn and stop cattle with the least amount of stress possible.  
The days begin by saddling up and being in the cattle shortly after sunup and not leaving them until after they have been placed on their afternoon grazing placement. Between discussion, demonstration, doing, observing the attitude, behavioral changes and discussing that, students generally achieve enough understanding to actually start applying it when they go home.

  Because of the intensity of the classes, and the fact we are holding them in the pasture, rather than a smaller more controlled area, class size is limited to ten riders. Experience (in both attending and holding schools) has taught me it isn't a good idea for managers and owners to send employees without attending themselves. Too often cowboys feel they are being forced to learn something which they feel they already know. By management also attending, they are leading by example, which helps their crew want to learn, and allows management to know if the crew is correctly performing the stockmanship changes. 

If you are interested in hosting a school in Mexico, contact Pedro Dominguez on Facebook. For schools in the USA and other countries email me. By inviting other ranches to attend, the overall cost will often be lower than attending a two day school with no hands on experience. For more information on what the methods are, visit my website or order my stockmanship video on Amazon. In the meantime, enjoy the teaser and trailer to the video below to get an idea of what you will learn in the school.




  1. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your linked header on our new site directory, As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention.

    If you are concerned about us being up to no good, please do a Google search for SiteHoundSniffs (with or without the .com). The results should prove that this is meant to be a very good thing.

    Specifically, what we are wanting to do is take a screenshot of your header and display it (linked back to the homepage) in place of the text-link. If you will visit, it should be easy to see how having a displayed header makes an individual site more attractive to visitors and SiteHoundSniffs look better. You do not have to do a thing but grant permission. There is absolutely no charge, nor will there ever be.

    1. Thank you so very much for giving permission. You can see the linked header for The Bovine Blog under All, Business/Monetary. Entertainment, Horses, Pets/Livestock, Political and the United States. I hope you don't mind that I took the liberty to also display the header for the 2Lazy4U Co. website. You can see it under All, Horses, Humor, Literary, Pets/Livestock and the United States. If you could say something (preferably good) about here and there, we would greatly appreciate it.


  2. Thank you for sharing valuable information. Nice post. I enjoyed reading this post.
