Lambing & Rearing

Loading...
Bearing retainers of this type, for use in cases of vaginal or uterine prolapse in ewes, have been around for many years. Usually they feature tie strings or tape for securing the retainer to the wool of the ewe. This can be a tedious process. We have developed the 'Protainer'. This tool features locking clips at each end which are clipped onto the wool. Protainer is applied in seconds, is 100% secure, and is easily removed. Pack of 4 pieces. Registered Design NZ 416420.
This support is used to help prevent prolapse before or after lambing. Once inserted into the vagina it can be tied to the fleece to retain. Or use a piece of old baling twine, to secure in place with a loop around the front legs (under neck) and back to the retainer. Even when used prior to birthing, the exit of the lamb will push the retainer clear. Sterilise and use a lubricant before insertion. Pack of 4 supports complete with tie tapes.
