What is the best age to disbud calves?

Where practical, calves should be disbudded while horn development is still at the horn bud stage as the horn buds are not yet attached to the skull. Consequently, the procedure involves less tissue trauma and is less stressful. Disbudding is significantly less stressful than dehorning older cattle.
• Use a cauterisation method (i.e. a heated disbudding iron) to remove the horn buds.
• A custom-built calf dehorning crate will minimise stress to the calf and ensure optimum safety to the operator
