We've never banded before, always knife castrating in the past. After listening to all my friends extoll the "wound free" wonders of banding, we decided to try it this year. Yesterday I noticed that on two of the boys who are still here, their testicles are starting to turn loose and there is fresh, moist, raw skin at the point where they are coming off. One of them looked a little gooey. I drenched the area with iodine to dry it up and applied SWAT fly repellent all over the area. There was no swelling or real bad odor. I'm going to do that daily as our flies are pretty bad. They are good on tetanus vaccinations, having had their first CD/T and now due for their boosters which we're giving today. Any other suggestions? Thanks!!
