Horn Wire Saw
Disbudding is always our first choice. However, there are situations when it becomes necessary to trim the horns of a goat. If their horns have become dangerously long where they could get caught in a fence or accidently hurt a care giver, you could use this saw to remove the ends of the horn. There is a living core inside the horn that when cut too short, can cause severe bleeding. To avoid cutting too short, cut in small increments. Keep Blood Stopper (#17C) on hand just in case. (40’ of 17 mm wire and two SS saw handles)
