    I disbudded a couple of bucklings last month and scurs are already growing. On one boy, I think it is already to large to reburn, so my question is: How big does it need to be to band?

    I have never done this, but have looked online quite a bit and it seems fairly simple.

    If they are big enough for you to be able to hold them while the band is set in place, they are big enough. You may need to use tape to hold them in place.
