    30˝ Catena OB

    The 30' OB Chain is an essential tool in the realm of veterinary obstetrics, particularly in the agricultural sector. Crafted from high-grade materials this durable chain is designed to withstand the rigors of assisting with the delivery of calves. Its length and material are chosen to provide a good grip on the calf without causing injury, ensuring the safety of both the animal and the user. The OB chain's sanitary properties make it a superior choice over traditional ropes, which can harbor bacteria and are more challenging to clean. The choice of chain length is crucial; the 30' chain is optimal when the front legs of the calf are exposed, while longer chains may be necessary for different birthing positions within the birth canal. This tool's design reflects a deep understanding of the calving process and a commitment to animal welfare, making it a reliable choice for farmers and veterinarians alike. During calf delivery, there are several common complications that can arise, posing risks to both the calf and the mother. One of the most frequent issues is dystocia, which is difficulty in delivering the calf due to its size or position. Calves that are too large or positioned abnormally in the birth canal can cause significant delays in delivery, leading to oxygen deprivation and potential mortality. Additionally, cows with smaller pelvic areas may experience more difficulty during calving, which is particularly common in younger cows that have not reached full skeletal maturity. Nutritional status also plays a critical role; cows that are either undernourished or overweight may have increased rates of dystocia. Other complications include abnormal presentations, such as breech or transverse positions, which require veterinary intervention to correct. Managing these risks involves careful monitoring, proper nutrition, and sometimes, medical intervention to ensure the health and safety of both the cow and the calf during the birthing process This OB Chain is Strong! Tested to withstand a minimum of 1,200 lbs. of pull  ‍

    60˝ Catena OB

    The 60-inch obstetrical (OB) chain is a crucial tool in veterinary medicine, particularly in the field of bovine obstetrics. It is designed to aid in the delivery of calves, providing a good grip without causing injury to the calf or cow during a difficult calving process. The OB chain is often preferred over rope because it is more sanitary and less likely to slip off during use. When selecting an OB chain, it is important to consider the material for durability and ease of cleaning. Premium-quality nickel-plated OB chains are recommended for their reliable performance and long-lasting durability. In practice, using two 30-inch chains—one on either leg—can be more practical than a single 60-inch chain. Proper placement is critical: a chain loop should be placed around the leg just above the fetlock, with a half-hitch just above the hoof to spread the tension and avoid injury. After use, the chains should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to maintain sanitation. The use of OB chains is a testament to the advancements in veterinary practices that ensure the safety and health of livestock during the birthing process   Strong! Tested to withstand a minimum of 1,200 lbs. of pull. ‍
