These 5-day workshops are conducted almost entirely in the field, with the Dimbangombe herders assisting our regular training staff. Participants learn how to position themselves relative to the herd so that the herd moves where they want it to move, calmly and quietly, and use the same technique to manoeuvre animals into handling facilities or in and out of the kraal. They learn about Holistic Planned Grazing and how to plan the herding each day to best implement the plan and also learn about kraal management and maintenance.
