Chin Ball Marker


Has anybody used a chin ball marker on a stock bull ?
Have ordered one tonight to put on a young bull with some heifers just wondered if anybody had any experience of them.

Was beginning to regret ordering one til I scrolled down the page.
The one person I know who has one was impressed. Probably better than 20 years ago

Yup, great job. Using one on a teaser bull. For a period last year we hadnt got round to filling it with paint for few weeks & the number of detected heats went down quite a bit!

£88 for the harness the ink is expensive but I've started buying ordinary raddle powder and mixing it with oil seems to work and is much cheaper.
