Disbudding is an increasingly common practice with our director having extensive experience in the development of the industry standard techniques.
Lief personally designed and invented the Calf Crates that are now used throughout NZ. These Calf Crates are specifically designed for calves that have been locally anaesthetised using a 2% Lignocaine local anaesthetic which is purchased through your veteraniarian dispensery. This form of "Disbudding" has a quicker recovery time than other methods hence the calves will return to feeding immediately. We undertake all the work leaving the farmer free to perform other essential farm tasks. Our experience is second to none being the first to offer this method over 22 years ago.
Scan Spec is qualified to provide all your calf disbudding needs under your veterinary supervision using local anaesthetic. Tagging and castration can be done at the same time. Two Technicians are available for larger mobs.
