Livestock Prod Has No Moving PartsLatest new livestock prod on the market is Shock Stock, introduced by the Magrath co.
It features a special clog-free tip (the two electrodes are an inch apart – far enough so manure can’t build up between them) and a solid state electronic system with no moving parts. Equipped with high energy alkaline batteries, it stays energized for about two hours of operation. “If transmits a very low current to the animal with a strong, instantaneous jolt,” according to the manufacturer.
Standard model, 38 in. long overall, retails for $45 with batteries. Also available in a 24 in. model for use in tight quarters, and long 59 in. model.
