Jab day of TB test hoping for better result this time View attachment 934755View attachment 934756
how does your vet go on with the locking yokes for cattle pushing forwards and pulling back when they have to clip there neck and jab.
I’ve done a few tb tests in my yokes and always feel it’s a bit risky, there’s always a couple that will have a dippy do with a stranger in front of them.
last time vet got hand bashed up fair bad some how but I’m not just sure.
I’m happy with yokes as they make day to day jobs so easy but I’ve just bought a new crush for mainly tb testing as I feel it’s just safer.

On IAE yokes here but same as you with the long pin and let them go as you do one. Lord only knows what he caught his hand on but it fair swelled up quick.
I get a little concerned to when they have to get that close to the ones with horns and they start throwing there heads around. Any sign of that I’m straight on with the nose clamp.
fingers crossed all goes well for you
