No-Bull Enterprises 785-332-3344
The Callicrate Bander castration system--a humane technique in the beef industry's increasingly popular with the goat and sheep sectors. The Callicrate Bander for delayed castration and the Callicrate "WEE" Bander for early castration can be used for castration, horn removal and other medical procedures requiring ligation or negation of blood flow. Purebred breeders often prefer to delay castration to give young animals more time to develop their genetic potential. In addition, commercial operations can benefit from delaying castration and taking advantage of natural testosterone in a way that mirrors natural beef programs. Male goats are physiologically unique in how they mature, requiring careful management to prevent complications later. Studies of high-tension banding have demonstrated the negation of blood flow triggers a natural analgesic effect that blocks pain while minimizing swelling and related complications.
