The Callicrate Bander™ has earned a reputation as the most humane and effective bloodless castration method on the market, recommended by veterinarians, animal handling specialists and cattle producers.
Like many in agriculture, Mike Callicrate dreams of a better future for farmers, ranchers and rural communities. He’s worried about consumer distrust of management decisions; angry that big food corporations are boxing farmers into impossible corners; unhappy that the rural way of life is becoming eroded and unsustainable. Unlike most of us, however, he’s doing something about it.
President and founder of No-Bull Enterprises, Callicrate invented and now markets a variety of ultra-humane, high quality, easy-to-use, bloodless castrating tools for use on new- born to full-grown livestock. His tool doesn’t just improve castration, it’s a step towards fundamentally changing agri- culture as a whole.
“I don’t want to talk about how great our product is. I want to talk about what drives our company …”
“We have the Callicrate Bander and love using it on our cattle. I can’t believe how easy it is and the cattle don’t seem to mind it at all. I am a firm believer. I’m still singing the praises of the Callicrate Bander.” Peggy, Grants Pass, Oregon
“Always happy to see how the calves handle the band so much easier than a knife cut. Once turned out they don’t kick, don’t stop eating, and don’t seem to hardly notice it at all.” Blair Hunewill – California
“We usually try to get the calves started on feed and then I band them and it doesn’t slow them up a bit. I leave my bull calves intact to about 600 pounds, which means they stay healthier and perform better.” Dan Fields – Kansas
