USE OF BANDERS EXPANDS BEYOND CASTRATION
A popular castration device is proving adaptable for a wide variety of other animal health procedures, according to livestock producers and veterinarians.
(St. Francis, KS) The Callicrate Bander was developed as a tool for low-stress, bloodless, user-friendly castration that enables cattle on feed to maintain high performance levels. However, the ligation capabilities of the Callicrate Bander, which is designed and handcrafted in the U.S., also lends itself to a variety of other animal health treatments.
Tom King, an independent marketing representative from Oshkosh, Nebraska says he continues to see new uses for the bander, especially among livestock veterinarians who use it when they need a sanitary way to shut off blood supply for operations.
“I’ve had veterinarians tell me they use it on just about anything that’s sticking out that’s not supposed to be there. For blood worts and tumors and damaged teats on dairy cows. Even had two vets now tell me that they’ve used it to amputate broken legs that needed to be taken off.”
Tail docking is just one example of a procedure made simple, safe and stress-free by using the Callicrate Bander. Marketing rep Mick Lovelace of Edmond, Oklahoma says the practice is widely used on dairies where sanitation in milking barns and parlors is an issue, and the Callicrate Bander makes the procedure much simpler for the dairy farmer in either a stall barn or a parlor barn situation.
