On older bulls, the local vet gives you a choice of banded or knife cut. We had an 18 month old banded, never went off feed, after a month or so he calmed down a good bit, the sack fell of in two months, he still functioned as a "Gomer". Works for me

I used one for the first time 3 months ago. I banded about 20 500lb calves.The calves were being used to train cutting horses. We gave the calves a two day break and went back to working them without any problems. Bags fell off in about two months.
