Air-Powered Cattle De-Horner
You can clip off two 2-in. dia. horns in 18 seconds with this powerful new air-powered cattle de-horner that's faster, cheaper and more convenient to use than conventional hydraulic de-horners, says the manufacturer.
Invented in Australia and recently introduced into the U.S. by Bar-F Manufacturing, Oklahoma City, Okla., the Bull-It-Proof de-horner runs off a gas or electric-powered air compressor or pneumatic truck brakes. Typically, it requires 80 to 100 psi's to remove an average size and strength horn.
Easily balanced in two hands, the 27-lb. unit features a cutting head that will handle a horn up to 3 in. in dia.
Its quick, close cut reduces blood loss and stress on animals, the distributor notes. Sells for $699.
