Genuine high-quality hi-tech cord, made specially to withstand the heavy-duty requirements of automatic cluster removers. The cord is cut and chafe resistant, and extremely strong. (5x stronger than typical 4mm polyester cord.) Available as 100m rolls only. Made in New Zealand.
When a calf is born with a contracted flexor tendon, the fetlock joint is caused to knuckle under, causing serious limitation to the mobility of the calf. The BOS splint is applied to the back of the leg, with the splint bottom edge at ground level. With application of the splint the calf should have normal mobility immediately. Remove the splint after 4-5 days. Splint length 40cm o.a.
NB: Full container must not be carried by probe.
These feeders also feature intelligently designed bottle with multi-directional easy-grip hand hold. The teat is mounted low in the cap to empty the bottle contents completely. The wide 70mm-diameter neck ensures easier filling and cleaning, and the coarse-thread cap is quick and easy to fit. The wide base gives the bottle maximum stability when standing. Spare teats are supplied as fitted teat/cap assemblies, green cap for Easy Feeder and blue cap for Speedy Feeder, or as bare teat. (Teat replacement needs some strength to achieve.)
The Chin-Ball Mating Harness was developed in New Zealand, and is used around the world for identifying mated cows. The robust harness/halter has a cone-shaped device underneath which contains a freely-rotating ball, working on the same principle as a ball-pen. The stainless-steel container can be filled with ink of the desired colour. Each fill is enough to mark 25-30 cows (approx. 0.5 litre). When a cow is properly in season she will receive very clearly identifiable back markings from the bull (or cow) wearing the device. Marks fade in 4 to 14 days. We suggest changing colours on a 3 week cycle, to prevent any confusion. Ink is available in 1 litre containers. Ink is oil based. NB: Ink must be mixed thoroughly if it has been stored for some time.
The Farmhand large dehorner is a development from Shoof. It has been designed to suit the high end of the dehorning market, where strength, reliability and light weight are important. The dehorner is made of hardened stainless steel, with Australian hardwood handles.
The gear set is precision cast to create the most cutting force with the least handle effort. To aid in this the main pivot points are bronze bushed, to reduce rotation loads. All parts are available. Blade opening to 80mm. Handles 70cm long. Length 122cm o.a.
