The medicine administered was lidocaine (a local anesthetic) and Xylazine (a sedative and analgesic, brand name Rompun). Horn buds were cauterized using a dehorning hot iron. The calves were up and chipper within a few hours. This method is painless for the calves and eliminates the risk of eye injury that can come from using caustic dehorning pastes. Dehorning performed by Louise Calderwood.
