Pig tails docked by gas-fired gadget

PIGLETS tails can be quickly and hygienically docked thanks to the gas operated Tail-Master, claims equipment supplier Rainbow Valve.

The Tail-Master immediately cauterises wounds and allows a high degree of accuracy, it says. It is made of stainless steel and can operate for 90 minutes from each gas filling. Temperature is controlled by a thumb screw.

Cost is £127 (01359-250238).
