This device has been developed to take the strain and pain out of piglet castration. Ideally for use on piglets 2-7 days old. When supplied complete with the removable mounting bracket, it is simply clamped onto the stall wall with the spring-loaded arms. The piglet is loaded in on its back, head first. The legs clamp is then swung forward to restrain the hind legs, leaving the testicles cleanly exposed. This makes castration a simple one-person job. Device can also be used for tail docking and vaccinations. All stainless steel. The cradle on its own can suit alternative mounting systems.
This spray can be used to stop fighting and biting in pigs and poultry. It covers the animals’ individual odours, reducing their incentive to challenge each other. It is best sprayed onto pen walls, and into the air, twice a day until animals are settled.
