The California Bander was developed in USA to give breeders a low-cost tool for achieving delayed castration of bull calves. The California bander is the lowest cost, simplest and easiest tool to use for this task. Delayed castration allows bull calves to grow faster on the natural testosterone produced by retaining their testicles for longer. To apply the bands the tool is grasped by the left hand as pictured above. The band clip is fitted into the small slot in the top of the tool. The testicles are grasped firmly against the tool and the band is pulled tightly around the scrotal sac and down into the V-notch of the clip. Let go of the sac and the clip frees from the tool. The task is complete. A demonstration DVD is supplied with each Bander and is also available free on request.
This tool from USA is for the purpose of ensuring bulls can achieve the fastest possible growth rates, without need of artificial hormonal growth promotants. (Proven 15% improvements.) They are then easily and humanely castrated at the latest appropriate stage. The Callicrate Bander can be used on larger animals to quickly, cleanly, non-surgically and most importanthumanely remove the testicles. Bull management can be modified to castrate nearer maturity maximising the growth induced by natural testosterone. The procedure is based on the use of a strong rubber cord inserted into a patented application device. The cord is stretched over the scrotum before being tightened by a ratchet mechanism and then locked firmly into position using a metal clip. With a little practice the procedure is both faster and safer than using a knife or other castration instruments. ** The Bander kit includes Bander tool, loop cutter, 5 loops and demonstration video, all supplied in a sturdy kit box.
