Tail Docker - Hand Held Mains Powered

Tail Docker - Hand Held Mains Powered

Used for tail docking of piglets and lambs.

• The heated blade pinches off the tail, whilst the wound is simultaneously cauterised

• special pincher bracket catches the tail

During tail docking the tails of newborn piglets are burnt off and by this the vessels close simultaneously.

Pathogens cannot penetrate when the vessels are sealed immediately.

Generally tails are docked to a length of 2 – 3 cm.

The reason for tail docking is to avoid cannibalism among pigs that might take place if tails remain long during rearing and fattening.
