Introduction

People who understand the natural behavior patterns of farm animals will be able to handle them more easily. This will help reduce stress, improve animal welfare, and reduce accidents. Common domestic animals such as cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, poultry, and horses are prey species of grazing or foraging animals. Their wild ancestors survived in the wild by flight from predators. This is why domestic animals today are easily frightened by potentially threatening stimuli such as sudden movement. It is important to handle animals calmly; calm animals are safer and easier to handle than excited ones. If an animal becomes agitated, it is advisable to let it calm down for 20 to 30 minutes.
