A marking harness is a way for producers to tell if cattle have been mated.
The chin-ball mating harness was developed in New Zealand and is used around the world for identifying marked cattle or for marking cows empty or to be mated.
The robust harness-halter has a cone shaped device underneath which contains a free rotating ball working on the same principle as a ball point pen.
The stainless steel ball container can be filled ink of the desired colour.
Each fill is enough to mark 25 - 30 cows (approx 0.5 litres).
When a cow is properly inseason she will receive very clearly identifiable back markings from the bull wearing the device.
Marks fade in 4 - 14 days.
We suggest changing colourson a 3 week cycle to avoid confusion.
Ink is available in1 litre containers.
