Description: Barnes Precision Knuckle Saver Dehorners Chrome Plated Steel 17″ Long For dehorning calves, this toll has a simple, durable construction for long service. Made of heavy-duty steel with rust-resistant, oxidized finish, precision cutting edges and rubber grips on handles. The Barnes Dehorner has durable, straight stainless-steel handles with cupped cutting edges. For use on calves 2 months to a year old. Dehorning at an early age (less than eight weeks) reduces the risk of serious infection because the horn bud is removed without opening the sinus (cavity) into the skull. When surgically dehorning older calves, the sinus is opened. On dairy farms, calves may be dehorned by a veterinarian or her assistant during the monthly herd health visit. Avoid the summer and autumn periods when dehorning calves. The risk of infection and fly strike is great.  Dehorning early spring, late fall, and winter only. Please only do so with the advice of a professional.
