Non-aerosol marker lasts up to 10 days

A NON-AEROSOL spray applicator allows pigs, sheep or cattle to be marked from 0.9m (3ft) to 1.5mm (5ft) away.

The pink, green or blue Sprayolo markers from Quality Equipment, Bury St Edmunds, will remain visible for between five and 10 days according to colour. But as the dyes are water-soluble, they can easily be removed from skins or fleeces when necessary.

A 473ml applicator treats 500 animals. Cost is £22.65 (01359-240529).
