$1895.00 NZD excl GST

It is well known that dealing with animals can be dangerous, even when using top of the range handling equipment. The strength of any bovine animal still outweighs that of a normal person. Stock inflicted injuries are common (see ACC stats) and many farmers have experienced situations where their own life or the life of a staff member may have been at risk. (ACC pays many hundreds of thousands of dollars to injuries caused by farm animals and there are deaths every year).

TechniPharm's goal is to make farming ezy and to help farmers with tools and equipment which make controlling animals safe and increases overall animal wellbeing.

Farming animals means looking after their whole wellbeing. Drenching, castrating, preg testing, semen extraction, dehorning, tagging, AI and general vet treatments may be necessary from time to time. All treatments have a discomfort level.

Animals need to be restrained for the treatment, to be as stress free and as painless as possible and as safe as possible for the operator. Most farmers have some form of mechanical restraint, like a headbail or handler, but often this may not offer 'total control' and some animals will simply behave badly. Of course there is always sedation via injection but the reality of this is only viable and practical in certain situations.

TechniPharm now offers a very viable and animal wellbeing friendly product to complement mechanical restraints in the form of the Newtek Pacifier or animal control unit.

What is a pacifier or animal control unit?

Simply, it's a very small probe inserted in the rectum which sends electrical signals to the muscles. (Natural muscle movements are controlled by electronic pulses sent by the brain). The Newtek Pacifier sends waveform of pulses which in turn control muscle movements. This has been specially designed and is animal welfare (NZ) approved technology, as is used in some human medical situations for example during childbirth, post surgical situations, pain relief in trauma and some musculoskeletal conditions. (Bergman2007)

- It will be safer for you and your staff to control animals
