Hygiene at docking/ calf marking

Tools used at this time of the year eg. elastrators, ear markers and taggers, have often been forgotten about since this time last year!!

Take the time to give them a good clean up and disinfect them. Get your ear markers sharpened if necessary.

Dirty gear will lead to infections at docking and calf marking. Also ensure you have disinfectant on hand to clean things as docking or marking is undertaken.

Note, if using ear tags ensure they are clean, if they get dropped in the mud etc. clean thoroughly with disinfectant before application.
