The CWT tail docker is a handy thermal tail docker, specially designed to dock the tails of e.g. newborn piglets and lambs in a fast, effective and human way.
Because pigs tend to investigate everything in their surroundings, experience shows us that, they quickly tend to bite the tails of their companion due to
irritation and boredom. As a result, blood wounds may arise. These wounds can become infected with very painful consequences for the animals.
The CWT R-blade of the tail docker has a straight cutting surface of 21mm, which is heated quickly till 600 °C / 1112 °F, whereby the docked part of the tail is
burnt off, and by this the vessels are sealed and close simultaneously, with the result that any nasty infections can be prevented.
Furthermore, pathogens cannot penetrate when the vessels are sealed immediately.
