1. The size of cows and their unpredictable behavior constitute a hazard for workers who handle them. 2. When cows are startled by sudden movements and unfamiliar situations, they may kick, push, knock down, fall, or step on workers. 3. Cows in heat or those with calves are particularly excitable. Working in confining situations, such as milking stalls, exacerbates the danger of injury to handlers. 4. Knowledge of effective animal handling techniques and well designed handling facilities can reduce the incidence of injury.
