Coburn introduces new Dehorners for 2018. Express Dehorners, distributed by The Coburn Company, Inc., provide easy, fast and economical ways to remove horn buds.

Express Dehorners are a great and convenient option for dehorning/debudding calves and goats. Debudding at the youngest age possible greatly reduces stress on the calf, encouraging quicker gains. When dehorning/debudding it is important to follow pain management practices recommended by your veterinarian and it is also important to follow the instructions included with the Express Dehorners.

Express Dehorners are available in two styles, allowing producers to find the perfect dehorner for their operation.

Express Propane Dehorners are economical, lightweight and come with two different hose lengths – 5’ and 15’. Each Express Propane Dehorner comes with a fuel regulator to help reduce fuel waste. Propane Gas Dehorners heat to 1,200oF, in less than three minutes. Units come with reversible brass 11/16” and 13/16” Express Dehorning Tip (14020), hose, regulator, hex key and flint striker. Additional Express 3/5” Goat Dehorning Tip (14015) is available.
