How To Choose a Stock Prod for Your Farm

April 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 212

If you own a farm, there is a very likely chance that you either already own or plan to own cattle and other livestock. Owning a stock prod is an option if you are unable to get your livestock to move from one place to another without a bit of motivation. While many farms have cattle dogs to help round up the livestock, there may be times when a stock prod comes in handy for your needs. Since there are many different products on the market, you will want to choose the one that is designed for your intent. Doing your research prior to purchasing one will ensure that you are able to choose the right one, the first time.

Tips for Choosing the Right Stock Prod

Each stock prod is developed differently and with varying degrees of electricity and functions. Make a list of the features and functions you desire then shop around.

  • Electric vs. Non Electric- Not all prods are designed to be electric. Some simply have sharp ends that are used to lightly jab the livestock to get them to move. If you buy electric, be aware that you will need batteries on a regular basis. Electric versions require the use of C batteries or greater.
  • Voltage- if you choose an electric version, determine how much voltage you are looking for. You want to choose a model that is safely used with the lowest effective dose of voltage required to serve your purpose. The point of a stock prod is not to hurt the animals, but to get them to oblige when no other method works. If you sell or slaughter your cattle for meat, too much voltage will destroy the quality of the meat you are offering.

Precautionary measures should always be taken when using a tool of persuasion. The tool should be used sparingly so as not to excite and stress the animals out. Animals that are prone to being stressed out will have a higher rate of falling ill. Likewise, any animal that is excited is likely to run without caution risking injury.

Choosing the right tool for your needs is crucial to the effectiveness you are looking for. The purpose of a Stockmaster Stock Prod is not to be a regular tool of torture or a method of persuading the animals to obey commands. Rather, they are a last resort when it is needed.
