What is Numnuts?
Worldwide, more than 100 million lambs are castrated and tail docked each year without pain relief. The patented Numnuts® technology is a practical, farmer-friendly method for alleviating the pain suffered when lambs are castrated and tail-docked (known together as 'marking'). Numnuts® lets the farmer apply a rubber ring and inject local anaesthetic, quickly, safely and effectively. We intend to launch Numnuts® for the 2019 lambing season.

An operator safe, 2-stage injection mechanism ensures you dispense the right dose of anaesthetic to the right location each and every time.
