Every cattle farmer needs a decent bloat knife. This one is made for the job. Just make sure it always hangs on the same handy nail to grab in that emergency. 10cm blade. 23cm over-all. Special quality sheath of heavy-duty leather, riveted around blade for safety and also with elastic safety loop for handle.
This unusual all-plastic trocar can be used for emergency bloat. The 10mm bore ensures quick relief of pressure. The whole trocar is punched through the hide, as for usual emergency treatment, and then screwed down until the cannula top is flush on the hide. The trocar is then pulled out allowing the rumen gas and foam to escape. The benefit of this device is that the cannula thread maintains alignment of the rumen against the peritoneum, reducing internal contamination and associated trauma.
For relief of animals suffering chronic bloat. Especially useful for young stock. The cannular can be left inserted for up to 3 weeks, without harm (stitch to hide using holes provided). The threaded portion holds the rumen against the peritoneum, preventing peritonitis. Stainless steel pin. Cannula bore 5mm.
We recommend this trocar for emergency bloat. The big 12mm bore ensures faster relief and fewer blockages. Trocar shaft 17cm long x 12mm dia. Wood handle for safe grip in wet! All stainless steel. Extra cannula should be kept on hand for multiple-bloat occasions.
