Castration

Castration of cattle and horses is a routine field surgical procedure. It is a necessary part of herd management for both cattle and horses. Bulls are generally castrated standing with a local anesthetic while horses are typically castrated under a short general anesthetic. Surgical castration results in less pain and faster recovery for the animal as well as quicker return to weight gain over other techniques (i.e. elastrator band or Burdizzo).
