Research has confirmed that several diseases, including E.coli scours and Joint-ill, find their way into the newborn animal via the umbilical cord. Sprays and dips can also cause problems. Our umbilical clamps are the solution. Simply attach as soon as possible after birth. Remove after 24 to 48 hours. Place clamp approximately 5mm from top of umbilical cord. Cut cord below clamp to prevent suckling. Clamps can be disinfected and re-used if desired, or can be left to fall off naturally. Ideal for piglets as clamps are large enough not to fall through creep floors. Clamps 65mm long o.a.

Dry granulated lubricant saves lots of freight and handling. This 350gm pack will make up 30 litres of ready-to-use gel. For best mixing results add warm water to the powder a little at a time (rather than adding powder to water). For ideal consistency add 1 litre of water to 12gm of gel (one heaped desert spoon full is about 12gm). The container has a sprinkler top for making quick approximate mixes if you want. A.I.-safe as long as used in clean water.
For difficult deliveries a larger volume of lubricant can be of significant help. Our OB-lube pressure pump delivers about one-litre-per-minute through a 2m long, 12mm-i.d. plastic hose.

The tube is then pushed onto the blind spigot so it does not leak lubricant anywhere. Capacity 5-litres of lube. Wide neck for easy filling. Will pump all types of lubricant.
Very useful device for difficult calvings. Enables traction on head, or just prevention of head turning back during the delivery. Stainless steel cable with cast alloy sliding yolk. Can be dismantled for cleaning. Length 92cm o.a.
