Just ordered off of Amazon. A lot lower in price than what I've seen elsewhere, so I hope it's what I think it is? We'll see later this week.

that looks interesting.. May need to get one at some point.. Even just for when you have a stupid cow that doesn't let a calf nurse or something.. appears to be a lot less hassle and safer

How do you hold it on em and cut at the same time? Looks like it would take two folks, one to use immobilizer and one to cut.

If I’m not mistaken, it stays in by itself. Would this work on say a 200lb calf? I cut a big group of them yesterday and had a heck of a time.
Keep us posted how this one turns out

Yes. Keep it away from your wife. If not, and you pi$$ her off, you could be in quite a predicament :lol2: :hide:

I suspect that one works just like mine on small calves. For small you just dont turn the power up as high. For a 1200lb cow it takes more power.

It just arrived. Even came loaded with batteries. Looks and feels like a nice quality piece of equipment.

I was able to hold the unit in my hand with the power turned all the way up. You could feel a tingling sensation from the electric current. Hopefully I'll get a dry period this weekend to try it out.

Me and some buddies have tested an electric dog collar after some beers but an electric rectal probe is a whole nother level, don't think I've ever drank enough beers for that one!

I just ordered one to try. Figured I’m not out much if it’s junk. Hoping it will make freeze branding a little easier. Should get to use it towards the end of next week.
