"One of Shane's greatest strengths is his ability to 'read' cattle and determine what they need. Shane has developed a structured method to both teach and train these skills to caregivers in production systems through being available and supportive and offering guidance and encouragement".

Dr Tom Noffsinger, DVM
Production Animal Consultant - NE, USA

"As we all know in a workplace that involves Horses, People & Cattle there is potential for accidents. Having training organisations such as Morrissey and Friends is a genuine way of managing this risk and aim for reduce incidents in the work place.   

I thoroughly recommend Morrissey and Friends as a training organisation".

"I was lucky enough to spend some time with Morrissey and Friends travelling and working in the USA. A real benefit for me was seeing the practicality of their teachings and that they don't try and make a particular method fit a yard or ranch, they work on the ground with the crew to offer practical solutions. They provide 'in the moment' training to staff, working with their strengths and allowing them to see and feel the difference themselves".

"Shane demonstrates a high level of expertise in Horsemanship and Stockmanship. 
I have worked closely with Shane in training staff in cattle handling, cattle behaviour and pen riding. Shane is an experienced trainer and his training style is suitable for training livestock people of any age".

"Over the past 6 years I have been privileged to work and learn with Shane and Lucy Morrissey at several different feed yards. Shane and Lucy’s commitment to empowering caregivers and improving cattle wellbeing is very much aligned with the philosophy of Protein Production Vets. The hands-on training provided by Morrissey and Friends in horsemanship and cattle stewardship is unique, down to earth and has impact on the caregivers they teach".

Dr Lachlan Strohfeldt, BVSc

"Shane applies his extremely high standards to all the work he does with livestock and is adept at communicating his ability to handle stock with minimal stress. Enterprises that have utilised Shane’s livestock handling training have benefited enormously in terms of animal welfare, efficiency of animal movements, and staff morale".
