Livestock Prod Has No Moving Parts
Latest new livestock prod on the market is Shock-Stock, introduced by the Magrath Co. In reporting on it in the last issue of FARM SHOW, we gave you wrong information on how long the unit’s batteries last.
  “Shock Stock comes equipped with four high energy alkaline batteries which provide three times more life than ordinary carbon-zinc batteries,” according to Dr. Joseph Magrath, president. “Furthermore, the alkaline batteries retain their power much better in cold weather.”
  The unit features a special clog-free tip (the two electrodes are an inch apart – farm enough so manure can’t build up between them) and a solid state electronic system with no moving parts. “It transmits a very low current to the animal with a strong, instantaneous jolt,” according to Dr. Magrath.
  Standard model, 38 in. long overall, retails for $45 with batteries. Also available in a 24 in. model for use in tight quarters, and a long 59 in. model.
  For more details, contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Magrath Co., Box 148, McCook, Neb. 69001 (ph 308 345-1757 or 345-1638).
