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.

Now one harness combines the best of the BEARIN Prolapse and ADOPTA Restraint Harnesses, adding greater versatility, in a multipurpose aide that can be used year after year.

The new ADLAM Harness is based on the very successful BEARIN Prolapse Harness with a detachable fence strap and tubing ring added. The ADLAM Harness features greater comfort and effectiveness from cross-over tubing, now with a support ring, designed for prolapse retention. For prolapsing animals, the ADLAM Harness is used to retain the vagina/uterus either by fitting ahead of a prolapse or following aseptic reinsertion to hold it in place. Correctly fitted, the harness will not hinder bowel movement or lambing. Rather than just holding a prolapse in place as many other methods do, the ADLAM Harness will work to reduce straining and pain by exerting pressure on key points.

It is a multifunctional aide that enables:

- Effective retention of prolapses with no need to remove before successful lambing.
- Immobilisation to further help in preventing repeat prolapse.
- Easy observation and follow up of animals that have prolapsed.
- Mothering on of lambs, and prevention of smothering.
- Cast ewes to be supported in an upright position.
- Standing support for ewes that are unwell.
