  • Batchler All-In-One Castrator, Docker & Ear Marker Tool castrates docks & ear marks sheep goats & cattle

    I have never actually seen this done before this show. I just happen to sit down & there was this man chasing this sheep. Here is the interesting thing. My husband's family, his great-grandfather to be specific, invented an All-In-One Castrator, Docker and Ear Marker Tool in 1933. Once I married into the family 15 years ago, I became an owner in the company. This company is now in its 4th generation. If Mike had just had one of these tools, his job would not have been as "gross", as the All-In-One has "its own teeth". This tool literally castrates, docks and ear marks sheep, goats and even cattle under 300 lbs. I'll be glad to tell him all about this tool to pass on to the owners of the sheep if he will just contact me at Batchler Manufacturing, North Richland Hills, TX. I know that a lot of people prefer a pocket knife, but I do think if they tried this instrument, they would prefer it. We have some farmers/ranchers who have had their tools for 40+ years. Thank you for getting "dirty" doing this job as it was very useful information for me. A bit gross to watch a man use his own teeth, but very informational! Thanks, Darla Batchler darla@batchlerallinonetool.commoreless
