Yes you may. Docking Tails should generally be done within first couple months of life. Producers who have no experience in docking tails should consult with their veterinarian for a recommended procedure. Using the new “Tri-Band” Bander works great as it requires no clip. Dehorning is effective also. This will be very uncomfortable for the […]
You may use it on Cattle, Rams and Goats. Not recommended for domestic animals or horses. Also, Pig ears have been known to be banded.
Generally, once the band has been removed, you can’t do anything at this point. The skin should heal up and seal as normal. If bleeding occurs, it should stop and clot. If not, their isn’t much you can do. As any case, you should call your vet for advice also.
Again, many people run their operations differently. Generally a person may start anywhere from 90-120 days out. Usually you butcher the animal when it is 1150 lbs. to 1300lbs.

A general rule of thumb is, when the animal starts showing signs of masculinity, weather it is physical appearance or in behavior, then it is time to Castrate. Many people Castrate when […]
Keep the animal confined, and call your Veterinarian immediately. Try to keep the animal from bleeding.
You may cut the scrotum off 7 to 10 days after castrating. Be sure to cut a little bit BELOW the band, NOT ABOVE IT. Allow the band and clip to fall off naturally, which will happen 20 to 40 days after the band was administered.
