Take the edge off

August 25, 2014

Bookings for calf disbudding have now started
All calves disbudded by MVS are given local anaesthetic to desensitise the site where heat is applied to the horn bud
New research has shown the value of further pain management post-disbudding with Metacam 20
Calves treated with Metacam 20 are 6.5kg heavier than calves that have not been treated when weighed 10 days later

Less pain = Less stress = Better appetites = Better weight gains

Phone the clinic now to book in your calf disbudding, +/- Metacam +/- 7 in 1 vaccination on 07 888 8197.
