Description

CALIFORNIA BANDER CASTRATOR 

The California Bander is a stainless steel tool which applies stretchy surgical tubing for fast and easy bloodless castrating and is suitable for all ages and breeds.

A foam coating on the handle helps hands stay comfortable and flexible.

With practice, castrating can be done in just a few seconds per animal.

Precut, 6″ natural latex bands have an aluminum T-clip attached which fits into a slot on the tool.

The band is stretched around the scrotal sac, locked back into the clip and the tool is removed.

The band stays on for approx. 20 to 30 days as tissues dry out and fall off.

The California Bander works with all ages and breeds.

The California Bander is the simplest, quickest and easiest to use delayed castrator on the market. Animals can be banded in seconds. Designed in the US, the beauty of the California Bander is that you don’t have to try and feed the testicles through a loop like other methods. With the California Bander you work above the testicles, holding the scrotum and looping the band around. Simple, quick, easy and less expensive than other methods.

Many farmers are delaying castration to take advantage of the higher growth rates of entire animals. According to the supplier, research shows that if you leave bull calves intact they will typically grow 15 % faster and will also convert feed 20 % more efficiently than steer calves. Banding is safer and less stressful than surgical castration especially when used on more mature animals.

HOW TO USE THE CALIFORNIA BANDER:

To use, hold the tool in the left hand. Fit a band in the slot on the top of the tool, and hold the loose end of the band in between your fingers. Put your left hand up the left hand side of the scrotum, reach around behind the scrotum with your right hand, grab the loose end of the band, pull it around the top of the scrotum above the testicles and pull the band back into the clip at the tool end of the band. Remove the tool – no need to cut the loose end of the band off. Full instructions come with the tool.

California_Bander_Instructions_V

Hold the free end of the band between the 1st and 2nd fingers of the left hand. Doing so will help the clip stay steady while you stretch the band. Grasp the scrotal sac and hold the tool firmly against it. (Tip: roll up a towel to stimulate a scrotal sack. Practice a few times to get a feel for the tool and the bands).

California_Bander_Instructions_VIII

With your right hand, reach around the scrotal sac and grab the free end of the rubber tubing. Stretch the band a little downward and away from yourself with about 7 to 8 kgs of pull until there is no more free stretch.

California_Bander_Instructions_II

Pull the stretched band around the scrotal sac.

California_Bander_Instructions_III

Lock the band into the clip by pulling the stretched down the centre slot all the way to the bottom.

California_Bander_Instructions_IV

When the clip is down, pull the band to the right corner of the “T” slot on the clip to lock. (Tip: Be sure to keep the band fully stretched as you pull it around since you can’t tighten it once it is locked in the clip).

Release the clip from the tool by slightly tipping it backward, this will leave the band with the clip attached on the scrotal sac.

Be sure to keep the band fully stretched as you pull it around since you can’t tighten it once it is locked in the clip

If you can fit your finger in between the band and the scrotal sac you do not have the band tight enough.

 California Bander is boxed with instructions.
