Calf Disbudding

Horned cattle are a major management problem on farm, causing significant risks for both handlers and other stock. Removing horn buds when cattle are young has benefits for both humans and cattle.

NSAIDs help prevent pain associated with disbudding (administer to calves prior to disbudding procedure).  Contact AgriHealth or your vet for further advice.
