Abstract

THE dehorning of cattle, both dairy and beef, has many advantages.

Breeders of stud cattle frequently claim that removal of the horns spoils the appearance of show animals and stress that the practice is cruel.

Whilst both these statements may, to some extent, be true, the advantages of the practice far outweigh any disadvantages.
