Yep :up:If I did not have does to worry about, I'd band the bucklings at 4 months. I'd give each of them a banamine shot and a tetanus antitoxin, and band them.
The tetanus antitoxin will take care of a tetanus infection and the banamine will help with the initial pain, and the waiting until 4 months will take care of most of the urethra growth.
Not waiting longer than 4 months will prevent them from maturing into full blown buckish mindset, which does not always calm down after wethering.
Cutting can involve a longer recovery, and invite fly torment. It is not my preferred method. You will need to pay attention to mineral ratios for the rest of their lives, but you have to do that anyway... Even if you keep them full bucks.
Others may not agree BUT when our 4 boys needed to be fixed...first PLEASE be extremely sure that you give the urethra plenty of time to grow before fixing them. I've seen much too many boys fixed much too soon
For how many years have you been doing it this way? Or is this something you are planning to do this coming Winter and you haven't tried it yet?Personally, I'm castration using underwear elastic
I personally spent several castrations, an excellent result. I think the underwear elastic is the same everywhere, (For how many years have you been doing it this way? Or is this something you are planning to do this coming Winter and you haven't tried it yet?
Underwear elastic here in the US is pretty weak and give up the stretch easily, and I think that would stop me from ever using this product. I wonder if Russian underwear is tougher than ours? HaHaHa!
