When you own or plan to own cattle, it is critical to understand how to care for them. Cattle raising is not an easy task. You must consider their food, shelter, health, basic needs, medical conditions, and so on. They are animals, they cannot do anything, but they will provide you with benefits if you pay them something, which can be done by taking care of them. We’ve compiled a list of tools that will assist you in caring for your cattle.
1. Cattle Drencher
When a new born is born, they are vulnerable and may get infected with various diseases, because of their low absorption capacity. In the first six hours after birth, the gut absorption capacity decreases by one-third. After 24 hours, it can only absorb 11% of the antibodies given to it. Later feeds provide very little extra protection. However, we have a method for obtaining this input. This drencher employs a tried-and-true rigid drench probe design that provides a useful flow-adjustable stomach feeder and directly feeds their stomach.

10. Hoof Trimming Tools
Animal hooves grow faster in some areas especially where the ground is soft, than normal exercise can wear them down. Hoof trimming is necessary for the animal to be able to walk normally. Overgrown hooves are especially problematic for cows put on zero grazing who do not exercise or walk on paddocks at all. Donkeys working on rough terrain must also have their hooves trimmed regularly to keep them in good condition.
