Sheep Instruments

Sheep are common in Australia. We have a wide range of tools for marking, shearing and identification. 

Castration & Docking
Elastrator is the most appropriate tool for bloodless castration and docking. Elastrator works as an applicator to place strong marking rings.

Sheep shears are used for final trimming of wool during the grooming process. The hand shears are also used to trim the sides of the sheep until the proper shape is obtained.

Identification
Tattoo pliers and ear notchers are used for animal identification.
