    Just get the bander and bands at TSC. The blue bander works fine. Make sure both testicles are below the band. Will probably have to push them through one at a time.

    Thanks so much for the video. It’s a lot less scary now. I just need to get the tetanus antitoxin and some banamine. I ordered a bander on Amazon. It should be here Friday.

    Like what was posted, don't get a teat caught, also, make sure both testicles are below where you are going to place the band. Don't put it tight to the body and make sure the skin isn't wrinkled and no hair is twisted in the band. One more thing, band on a warm as opposed to a cold day. The cold day, they are sucked up pretty tight to the body and you may not be able to band above the testicles. Having a helper makes it a lot easier.
