Abstract:

Twenty four bulls presented for castration to Department of Surgery and Radiology, Bombay Veterinary College Parel, BSDPHA affiliated hospital and Department of TVCC, COVAS, Udgir were studied for comparative evaluation of casting method and sanding method of castration in bulls. All the animals were sedated with Xylazine @0.02mg/kg BW, IM 30 minutes before castration. In 12 animals traditional casting method was applied for castration and in other 12 animals standing method of castration was used. The standing castration was performed by fixation of animals in Travis. The hind limbs were tied to side rails of Travis separately and the scrotal bag was pulled back. The spermatic cords were located and castration was performed. Standing method of castration is safe, less time consuming with no accidental crushing of penis, and can be performed without complications like radial nerve paralysis, bone and muscle injuries.
