All around the world researchers are working on the scientific basis that proves the links between the mental stresses that stock face and their production.

Studies have found that whatever the beliefs that people handling stock hold- those beliefs translate straight into their handling skills.

These handling skills, in turn, determine whether animals will be stressed when the handler works with them.

If animals are stressed then they reproduce at lower rates, grow slower and get sick more often.
