Targeted Pain Relief for Lamb Marking

Numnuts provides targeted pain relief for tail docking and castration of sheep with a rubber ring. It’s an easy to use ring applicator, combined with an injector that dispenses NumOcaine anaesthetic.

Validated by CSIRO, Numnuts provides lambs the best start in life, giving welfare focused sheep farmers an ethical, sustainable approach to castration and de-tailing.

Give your lambs the best start in life

Worldwide, more than 100 million lambs are castrated and tail docked each year without pain relief. Numnuts’ patented technology is a practical, farmer-friendly method for alleviating the pain suffered when lambs go through these husbandry procedures. 

NumOcaine (Numnuts pain relief) is injected at the same time as ring application to the tail or testes, providing targeted pain relief that kicks in almost immediately.

Because ewe'd feel it...!

Numnuts was launched in Australia in 2019, after 10 years of research & development, via an international collaboration between welfare scientists at CSRIO and Moredun in combination with product design engineers 4c Design. Numnuts has been available in New Zealand since 2021 and (pending regulatory approval) will be able in the UK in 2023.

Numnuts is entirely unique. No other device exists that allows farmers to provide targeted pain relief to lambs during tail docking and castration.

Since its launch, Numnuts has been used by hundreds of pioneering sheep farmers and vets, with over 2.2 million doses of NumOcaine  administered so far.
