    Greek nationalist EOKA movement carries out attacks on British troops in Cyprus. Anti-communist crusade of Senator Joseph McCarthy () reaches a climax with televised hearings of his investigation committee. French forces in Vietnam surrender after defeat at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu; Geneva peace treaty splits Vietnam at the 17th parallel.   Handling sheep and lambs. you can press it against a wall or straddle it to limit its movement. A halter is one of the easiest ways to restrain a sheep for treatment or close inspection. (or raceway) is where the sheep will move through, usually in a single file. The front end of the chute should be kept open so that the sheep don't see.

      The best design is a single file race with a single degree half circle or 90 degree quarter circle. The serpentine design with two tight curves should only be used in places where space is restricted. When sufficient space is available a radius of 10 ft (3 m) to 12 ft ( m) is recommended for races used at slaughter plants. Sheep do not require specific feedstuffs. They require energy, protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and water. Energy Energy makes up the largest portion of the diet and is usually the most limiting nutrient in sheep diets. Carbohydrates, fat, and excess protein in the diet all contribute towards fulfilling the energy requirements of sheep.

The objective of the experiment was to determine the effects of an electrical prod application on behavioral and physiological characteristics of weaned beef cattle. R.B. Freeman, G.D. Hutson, Failure of electrical prompting to improve sheep movement in single file races Proc.

Sheep ran faster through races m wide than races m wide because they could move as a group rather than being constrained to move in single file. In both narrow and wide races sheep ran faster and were more spread out when the sides Cited by: Sheep in a crowd pen moving into a single file race.

Electrical stunning methods used commercially on sheep are effective and induce instantaneous insensibility. A minimum of 1 amp must be passed through the animal's brain to reliably induce insensibility (Gregory and Wotton, ).

Sheep race definition: a single-file walkway for sheep at the entrance to a sheep-dip | Meaning, pronunciation, translations and examples. A single, offset step equal to the width of one pig should be used to prevent jamming at the entrance of a single-file ramp (Grandin,).

Jamming can be fur- ther prevented by installing an entrance restricter at single-file race entrances. The entrance of the single-file race should provide only cm on each side of each pig.

In the crowd pen that leads to the single-file race (chute) for all species. Pork and sheep plants in which all stunning is dune in groups, such as group electric stunning on the floor and group C0; gas-stunning systems, where pigs are moved in small groups into the chamber. In many existing slaughter plants, locating and removing one or more visual distractions greatly facilitated the movement of cattle and pigs.

In one pork plant, moving ceiling lights to eliminate a sparkling reflection on a wet floor improved movement through the single-file race.

Modification of lighting can often greatly improve animal movement. A complete practical explanation of these principles was described by Grandin (,a) and Kilgour and Dalton (). Students are taught flight zone principles with lectures, videotapes, and practice with live animals.

Point of balance is taught by confining several cattle or sheep in a single-file. Single-file or double-file races should hold sufficient cattle to encourage following of the leader. Extensively raised cattle and other livestock that are not completely tame will remain calmer in single-file races if they do not see people in their flight zone, so people either need to remain outside the flight zone or a solid fence should be.

important when sheep are kept on open range or in large pastures. • Entry points to chutes should gradually “funnel” animals into them. • Single file races prevent sheep from turning and crowd-ing against one another. • Handling animals quietly will reduce balking and facili-tate movement.

Conditioning sheep to the handling experi. Chutes or races leading up to the stun box or restrainer must be laid out correctly. Layout mistakes can wreck the efficiency of the system.

Below is a list of layout principles. Never, never dead-end the single file chute or race – The design of the junction between a single file race. i am constructing a sheep race to take some of the stress out of bringing our ewes in (both for us and the sheep!) The only piece of information which i have not been able to find on the internet is the width that the race should be.

obviously i only want the sheep to go through in single file but dont want them to not want to go in because it looks too narrow, i suppose the obvious answer. Figure 13 illustrates handler movement patterns, which make it possible to reduce the use of electric prods or goads.

Cattle, sheep or pigs will move forward in a race when a handler passes by the animal in the opposite direction of the desired animal movement. The handler must move quickly in order to pass the point of balance at the shoulder. A slaughterhouse, also called abattoir (/ ˈ æ b ə t w ɑːr / ()), is a facility where animals are slaughtered, most often (though not always) to provide food for terhouses supply meat, which then becomes the responsibility of a packaging facility.

Slaughterhouses that produce meat that is not intended to be eaten by humans are sometimes referred to as knacker's yards or. Sheep identified before 31 December are known as the 'historic flock'. Sheep born between 11 January and 30 December were identified by double tags bearing a flock mark and individual number.

Sheep born between February and 10 January were identified with a single tag bearing a flock mark and individual number. followed by a curved race that funnelled the sheep into the forcing pen and Camera 8 at the single-file race. stock movement or inadvertently prompting personnel to modify their normal.

This enables the electric pulse to travel much farther and be less affected by weed contact.
