Bite-x spray nips tail-biting in pigs
DETER pigs from tail biting with a ready-to-use anti-biting spray that reduces blood loss launched by Nutec.
It claims Bite-x has an immediate astringent effect to reduce blood loss. It contains a colourant to identify treated stock and its residue is said to deter subsequent attacks. Bite-x helps conquer the problems of carcass rejection after tail-biting, says Nutec.
A 500ml bottle costs about £4 (01543-414456).
