The Sheep Cuff was invented and developed by South Australian sheep breeder Peter Durack in the early 1990’s. It is a simple device to quickly and conveniently immobilise a sheep. The two front legs and one back leg are slipped into the cuff which is then snapped closed (see photo). Very useful when a sheep needs checking or treatment (e.g. flystrike) to ensure it stays where you want it to. The Standard cuff will fit larger lambs (10 weeks or more), hoggets and ewes. Dimension is length o.a.
