BENEFITS OF TAIL DOCKING LAMBS.

  • Reduces dag formation and thus minimises susceptibility to fly-strike
  • Improves external parasite control
  • Improves the efficiency of dagging, crutching and shearing
  • Allows for management flexibility to finish lambs under variable weather conditions
  • Improves the cleanliness of the wool
  • Reduces handling required pre-slaughter for crutching/dagging
  • Reduces faecal contamination and risks to food safety at livestock processing plant

HOW IT WORKS

The wedge-shaped iron blade heated by gas, is used to both cut and cauterise the tail in one operation. The lamb is held in an inverted position by a cradle or chute. To avoid infections, do not dock wet lambs or in wet weather. Leave enough dock on the lamb to fully cover the vulva.
