My son held the ram lambs I used the Burdizzo on and he was waiting to hear the "crunch" like one hears on bulls, but on lambs there was no crunch, so he was pleasantly surprised. He had been dreading that for days, knowing he would draw up like prunes just hearing the crunch.Well being a guy and all... I'm staying out of this conversation because I already know I'm totally biased
You know I didn’t even think of doing that. My dad and I tried our best to band the two testicles together but it was our first time banding a lamb. I did find it weird that he was okay in the morning but in the afternoon couldn’t even get up. The next morning he was dead. Meanwhile the other ran lamb was even jumping around and drinking milk from his mom. So I do feel like we must’ve banded something that we shouldn’t have.Did you cut him open to find why he died?
Doesn't make sense that day of banding, he is fine, but next day is the problem. Sounds more like you somehow banded intestines and not just two testicles.
