Anyone have a link for this? The ones I keep finding are outrageously expensive. I could see this being very handy

I'm not sure where I originally found the info but here is what I have.

I think I gave less than $250 for it 2-3 years ago. I'm very happy with it.

$250 is a good price. This thread made me curious and the ones that I've looked up have been$600-800.

The ones I'm finding now are that high also. When I bought this one it was 2 people in a small shop building them. I am not sure why I can't find any info now unless they h ave been bought out or stopped producing them.

I will probably buy one to try. I like the unit that is all contained in the probe instead of the extra box like above.

I use one because I buy calves almost every week. Mostly thin rough calves that need worked and a better home. I might get 1 or I might get 6 at each market. Hard to get someone to help for just a few. As soon as I unload I vaccinate, work, castrate, and tag. If I only got a couple that day or if I got several I still don't have to get anyone to help.

Let us know how it works. I am curious about the single unit.
