When the time comes to make rams into wethers, farmers will have a better choice of castrating.

Many after learning the benefits of this new castrating system will likely choose for a bloodless system rather than the old method of 'the knife'.

"A growing number of farmers will also learn that the new TechniPharm Eze Bloodless method will put more meat on their animals and provide for a better yield," a company spokesman said.

"This means more profit for the same effort.

"Eze Bloodless castrating can happen at any stage and without nasty side effects or handling difficulties.

The Eze method of castrating, by placing a very high-tension ring on the scrotum, appears to generate a localised immune response. There is no growth setback and application of the rings is easy. - A Technipharm spokesman.

"Research indicates intact animals typically gain weight faster and convert feed more effectively, mainly due to the natural testosterone.

"Compared to the knife, the Eze Bloodless method is much more humane to the animals and easier on the operator.

"No blood in the yards means animals move easier and are not stressed.

"Farming is all about staying safe and knives and hands often do not mix well.

"The solution is simple - Eze wide band castration with no knives, no danger, and a better result for man and beast.

"The Eze method of castrating, by placing a very high-tension ring on the scrotum, appears to generate a localised immune response.

"There is no growth setback and application of the rings is easy.

"A special applicator is used which allows the band to be placed and tightened, and then clamped off with a special ring.

"Every animal gets a band to its own unique 'size' and the average time to apply the ring is 20 seconds.

"Under animal wellbeing regulations, veterinary advice on correct procedures for any castration is advised.

"The Eze Bloodless Castrating system offers two choices of applicators - one for animals under 200kg, and another for any animal over that weight."
