Dragging vs Table

Asked December 19, 2019, 11:31 AM EST

I read your recent article on the cortisol levels in calves in response to the branding methods used. What the article did not mention is the ranking of the cortisol level results for the 3 methods in which the calves were split off the cows. Many of us are curious and believe that result would give us a more accurate assessment of the stress level in regard to the table vs roping. Of those 3, what we’re the results? Thank you for your time. I look forward to your response. Lee Starritt Nebraska Sandhills
