"New favorite bander"
Tired of trying to thread the eye of a needle, I let some calves get bigger than I wanted too and this bander made the job much much easier! Unless you catch them the first week or two this is your bander!
The best bander around. Wouldnt use anything else.
I love this bander. It is so easy to use - I usually don't have help so for this to be easy enough to use by myself is wonderful! It seems to me it causes less discomfort and stress on the animal. I highly recommend this product.
"California Livestock Bander Tool"
So happy with the purchase. First try with a more mature buck. Worked perfectly. Thanks for carrying a great product.
I used this to band a seven month old mini nubian buck. I watched a video online and practiced on some socks first. I was worried I didn't get it on tight enough but everything dried up and fell off in two weeks! I gave asparin for the pain but after two days my guy was back to normal. I will use again if I ever need to castrate a buck.
I have tried different methods but this one seems to be less stressful on the animal. We like to wait until the animal is a little more developed in order to reduce the risk of crystals in the urinary tract. With a larger animal you have a hard time with the other type of banders. If you look on the internet you can find a video on how to use it.
"Saved me a bunch of $$$"
We used this to castrate six large goats we got from a dairy, all about 8 months in age. It was pretty easy to use and there were no complications with any of them. They were back to their normal routines 12 hours after banding. Took about 2 months for everything to dry up and fall off. Would definitely recommend this product. Worked great for us!
I had two buck goats whose services I no longer needed but my children would not allow me to sell them. I was afraid to cut them and there was NO WAY a cheerio would fit..this was an excellent alternative. Was slightly tricky to learn how to use but after practicing on a pair of socks, I got it figured out.:) Worked perfectly.
