Freeze branding is an ideal way of marking animals for easy and convenient identification. It involves the relatively painless process of destroying the pigment-producing cells in the hair follicles by applying intense cold to an animal's hide. This process causes the hair to grow white, thereby providing an effective identification mark on animals with darker hair.
The Brand-a-Bull kit contains one set of digit moulds 0 to 9, Brand-a-Bull gun and hose, set of instructions, demonstration video and a plastic squirt bottle for applying the meths or alcohol. CO2 is not included.
Freeze branding is a job that can now be done at any time or place to suit you. Dry ice is made as required from a CO2 cylinder to the nozzle of the Brand-a-bull gun.
The ice is then produced directly into the required digit mold until it is full. The mold is applied to the hide as for a normal iron freeze brand.
There are 3 sizes of digits available and both are available as full kits which include: the dry ice gun, delivery hose, freeze brand digits 0-9, alcohol bottle for easy cleaning and instruction manual.
In normal conditions users should get up to 15 x 3" brands per kilogram of CO2. Fewer brands will be possible using 4" digits.
