This product can be used to prevent or treat hardware disease in cattle; a disease that is caused by the ingestion of metal objects.
FEATURES / BENEFITS
Helps prevent hardware disease, which can be a life threating condition.
Solid steel construction reduces breakage of the magnet.
Cow magnets are popular with dairy farmers and veterinarians to help prevent Hardware Disease in cattle. While grazing, cows 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 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. One magnet works for the life of the cow!
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.
Hardware disease is a common term for bovine traumatic reticuloperitonitis. It is usually caused by the ingestion of a sharp, metallic object. These pieces of metal settle in the reticulum and can irritate or penetrate the lining. It is most common in dairy cattle, but is occasionally seen in beef cattle. It is very rarely reported in any other ruminants. It can be difficult to conclusively diagnose, but can be prevented by the oral administration of a magnet around the time that the animal reaches the age of one year.
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.
