I have eighteen years of experience handling beef cattle in conjunction with my research as a Professor of Animal Science at a distinguished university in California. Published 25 peer-reviewed journal articles and 13 non-peer-reviewed articles on beef cattle behavior based on original research conducted between 1984 and 2002 in California. Each of these studies involved many hours of cattle handling and management. Nineteen of my peer-reviewed publications involved bull behavior.
