Quick Straps are the easiest of all leg straps to use, and are the most visible on the cow. The protruding end of the Quick Strap is like a 'flag' waving on the cow's leg. The Quick Strap is removed simply by pressing the release button! For added safety we recommend using Quick Straps on both legs of antibiotic treated cows. Quick Straps are not supplied pre-printed. Marking pens will give temporary marks suitable for short-term notices if required. Sold as each.
Hook-and-loop type bands suitable for use around the hock of milking cows. These bands stay on well, but are not as secure as our usual ankle-fitting Leg Bands. But they are more visible in the dairy, and are easier (and safer) to apply and remove, and they stay cleaner. Just be sure to put on both legs, or use an ankle band also, if using for antibiotic or other high-risk identification. (Shoof will not accept responsibility for losses caused by lost bands.) Packs of 10 only.
Hook and loop nylon leg bands. Simply wrap around the cow's leg and press together for quick, temporary identification. To remove, grasp and pull. Easy to clean and completely re-usable. Legbands may be written on with a standard tag marker if required. Be sure to put on both legs, if using for antibiotic or other high-risk identification. (Shoof will not accept responsibility for losses caused by lost bands.) Size 33cm long by 5cm wide. Packs of ten only.
Dairymen have used a variety of products for quick and easy temporary identification in the cowshed. Plastic insulation tape is often used, but this can often shrink after application and cause some pain and aggravation. Ordinary hardware-store duct tape is cheap, and is easy to apply, but generally falls off in a very short time as water penetrates the plastic coating and causes the cloth to fall apart. Our special-manufacture Leg & Tail tape is made for the purpose. It is a polyethylene-coated water-proof cloth-backed tape that is easy to rip, will not shrink, and will stay on the leg or tail for up to three weeks. Tape is 10m long x 48mm wide.
