Stockmen can save hundreds
of dollars each year by follow-1

That rule is proper handling.!
Losses from improper hand-
ling run very high in the live-

animals and damaged hides
and meat cost producers mil-
lions of dollars even' year.
These suggestions are offered,
for cutting down on handling •
Avoid twisting, confusing tra-;
vel routes when moving live-,

es in traffic. Clear the way of,
