Gas Calf Dehorner
The dehorner works like an electric dehorner in that it uses heat to kill the horn's growth cells causing the horn bud to atrophy and fall off. The advantage is that it maintains its high heat consistently, minimizing stress to animals, and is portable. Like other dehorners, it is also virtually blood-less, which eliminates fly and infection problems that can occur when using a knife to dehorn.
The solid brass dehorner tip is fitted to a heavy-duty burner that attaches to any standard hand-held propane tank. Sells for $44.95, shipping included.
