Farmer Invents Vaccination Tool
"Everyone who tries it wonders how they ever got along without it," says Jerry Honeycutt, McCook, Neb., about "Slap-Shot", his new attachment for vaccination needles that he developed on his own farm to eliminate problems with broken needles.
Slap-Shot is simply a 30-in. long flexible plastic tube that's inserted between the needle and syringe - the needle locks onto one end and the syringe to the other. To vaccinate, the producer simply "slaps" the needle into the animal and immediately squeezes the syringe handle to dispense vaccine and then pulls back on the syringe to pull the needle out of the animal.
Sells for $4.95 and comes in three lengths: 30-in. (adult swine and cattle); 26-in. (feeder pigs and smaller calves); and 22-in. (cattle in squeeze chutes as well as horses and sheep in pens).
