Rumen Magnets- latest test results
Test results are in comparing various rumen magnets used in cattle for preventing "wire" or hardware disease.
Strength tests have shown the magnetic power of our "MegaMagnet" rumen magnets to be superior to the others tested.
A second "Ring-type" magnet was inferior to MegaMagnet but better than 3 basket types.
In summary, we recommend the MegaMagnet for adult cows and ruminating youngstock over 150kg. liveweight. Reasons being its power and its ease of application.
The basket type is suitable for cows, it is a little cheaper, but weaker and wider. The basket design is also familiar to present users.
As with inserting any "bolus" type device into cattle, use the appropriate applicator , seek training if you are inexperienced or unsure, be quiet and gentle.
