Quantitative assessment of pain associated behaviours of male lambs (less than 1 week and 6-8 weeks old) in response to castration or tail docking with a new method (Clampeasy)

Project Details


The proposed research is intended to provide evidence of the practicability and effectiveness of a new method (Clampeasy) for castration and tail docking of lambs which produces rapid and permanent local anaesthesia of the scrotum/testes and the tail.

The trial will help determine if Clampeasy can provide an acceptable 'on farm' alternative to current practices.
