This product can be used to prevent or treat hardware disease in cattle; a disease that is caused by the ingestion of metal objects.
Why “Cow” magnet? Farmers often place one of these cow magnets in the cow’s stomach to attract nails or small pieces of iron that the cow ingests. This prevents damage to a cow’s stomach or “Hardware Disease”.
FEATURES / BENEFITS
Helps prevent hardware disease, which can be a life threating condition.
Solid steel construction reduces breakage of the magnet.
The product is a Rare Earth Magnet (NdFeB) encapsulated in a Stainless Steel SS304 container.
The product is a low cost strong magnet recommended for cows; however, due to its composite structure and the almost invisible capsule seam in the center, it will have a distorted magnetic field that make it unsuitable for science education.
Stainless Steel NdFeB Cow Magnet is not recommended for science experiments and industrial applications where the magnet may be subject to pressure or vibration.
Cow magnets are used as a preventive veterinary product for TRAUMATIC RETICULA PERITONITIS (popularly known as Hardware Disease). While grazing, cows & buffalos eat everything from grass and dirt to nails, staples and bits of bailing wire (referred to as tramp iron) Tramp iron tends to lodge in the honeycombed walls of the reticulum, threatening the surrounding vital organs and causing irritation and inflammation, known as Hardware Disease. The cow loses her appetite and decreases her milk output (dairy cows), or her ability to gain weight (feeder stock). Cow magnets help prevent this disease by attracting stray metal from the folds and crevices of the rumen and reticulum & hold them in place so that they cannot move around and injure the animal. The magnet simply keeps foreign metallic objects adhered together in a ball, reducing the chances of penetrating the reticulum. They can be administered with a balling gun, like those used for pills. The magnet will move into the second stomach compartment of the cow. It will usually remain there for at least a year,but may eventually be expelled through the digestive tract. Cow magnets are extensively exported to USA and Australian.
These magnets are impressively strong and are great for demonstrations. You can try the following to create a 3-D view of the magnetic field: – Put some iron filings (about 1/2 lb) into a empty 1L bottle. – Roll up a manila folder very tightly and tape one end shut, and insert into the bottle so the open end sticks out. – Tape around the top of the bottle so the iron filings won’t get out. – Put the cow magnet in the folder tube, and shake iron filings. They form a very nice visual of the magnetic field! It helps to put some wadded paper in the bottom of the tube so the magnet is around the middle of the bottle. The iron filings will hold the cow magnet in the tube. I stuck a long screwdriver into the tube to easily pull the magnet out again.
Students can use the Cow Magnet to conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact. The Cow Magnet can be used to develop and model how two objects interacting through magnetic fields, illustrates the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.
