You may have worked hard around cows for a while, but you can still get hurt. Milking cows weigh between 1,500 and 1,800 pounds. It is necessary how to learn how to prevent accidents. From experience, I have learned to be mindful of their flight zone and blind spots. Cattle can't see directly behind them when they are looking straight ahead. Avoid approaching them from behind, as you are more likely to get kicked.
