Description

Dehorning / Disbudding is the process of removing the horn buds from a young animal, before they develop into horns.

The best time for Dehorning is between week 3 and 8, but it may vary from breed to breed.

The height of the young horn bud should not be more than 1cm.

Why dis-bud or de-horn?

  • Safety: Horned animals can pose a safety risk to both humans and other animals, as they can use their horns to inflict serious injuries. Dehorning can help reduce the risk of accidental injury or aggression.
  • Health: Horns can sometimes become infected or injured, leading to pain and other health problems for the animal. Removing the horns can help prevent these issues.
  • Management: Horns can make it difficult to handle, transport and manage animals, as they can get caught in fences and other equipment. Dehorning can make it easier to handle animals for tasks such as veterinary procedures or transportation.
