I recently have tried a new cattle loading system that came to me in a dream. Well not actually. I was still awake. None the less. In this method we build the coral around the steer right in the field among the herd. The steer keeps eating away and has no behavior change. The only thing I do is open the gate to the trailer and he walks on him self. As far as trailer loading goes It really doesn't get more stress free then this. Minimal stress handling is good for the animals, good for the farmer, and good for the quality of the meat.
