About Curt:

For more than a decade, Curt Pate has conducted demonstrations and clinics on stockmanship, colt starting and ranch horsemanship throughout North America and Europe. A nationally recognized stockmanship instructor, Pate teaches techniques on how to put the proper pressure on animals at a different angle and at varying amounts to help move them comfortably and without a negative experience – for the stockman or the livestock.

‘Sometimes you cannot see pressure or understand its effects until it has created a problem. When you force livestock to go into a pen, they may get excited, go on the fight, and become dangerous or very difficult to work. Negative pressure creates stress, positive pressure creates contentment,’ Pate says.

An avid environmentalist, Pate is passionate about grazing animals to improve the environment as well as for a profitable farm business.

‘We need to utilize the Earth’s resources in a way that works like a good ranch, combining Mother Nature with technology then adding common sense and integrity. With the growing public scrutiny of livestock production, improving our livestock handling practices will help the sustainability of all segments of the livestock industry,’ Pate says.
