Enjoy the Easy Way to Castrate Bulls

Fast, easy, cost-effective and easier on the 'bulls'.
InoSol Co. LLC in El Centro, California, understands how much work and effort goes into processing cattle. For that reason, we designed a castration tool for sterilizing bulls that drastically reduces the time and cost that goes into the processing procedure.

How to Use the California Bander

The "California Bander" is our castration tool. It is a simple, clean, and a cost-effective tool for cattlemen and veterinarians across the nation. It is supplied by various farm supply companies.

Roll up a towel to simulate the scrotal sack. The bands arrive pre-assembled and are easy to use. 

To use the California Bander:

Pull the Stretched Band Around the Scrotal Sac.
Lock the Band Into the Clip By Pulling the Stretched Band Down the Center Slot All the Way To the Bottom. When the Clip Is Down, Pull the Band to the Right Corner Of the "T" Slot On the Clip to Lock It. Be Sure to Keep the Band Fully Stretched As You Pull It Around.

Release the Clip From the Tool By Slightly Tipping It Backward. This Will Leave the Band With the Clip Attached On the Scrotal Sac. The Rubber Tube Does Not Need to Come Off. If You Can Fit Your Finger In Between the Band And the Scrotal Sac, You Do Not Have the Band Tight Enough.

Advantages of Delayed Castration

Delayed castration allows you to take advantage of the testosterone that naturally helps young bulls grow faster. Research shows that if you leave bull calves intact, they will typically gain 15% faster and will also convert feed 20% more efficiently than steer calves. The banding process is less stressful, especially when used on more mature animals.
