Cautery (heat) docking of lambs is the safest and least traumatic
method. It is quick and easy, sealing off the blood vessels as the tail
is cut through. The reduced stress and blood loss improves growth rate
and reduces mothering time. The Primus Docking Iron is designed and made
in Australia. It uses gas from a normal (BBQ, etc) portable gas cylinder
(not supplied). A 4m delivery hose is supplied. The Iron is not self
lighting. Allow it to heat for at least 2 minutes before using. Adjust
the heat to an appropriate temperature which cuts easily and effectively
seals all blood vessels. Cutting should take about 2 seconds to give the
best results. Keep the cutting blade clean with the wire brush supplied.
A spare gas nipple is supplied, along with full user instructions, and a
parts list and diagram. All parts are available. Note: The POL adaptor
is required for standard 9kg LPG cylinder.
