  • The device must be fully inserted to the corner of the animal’s lip.
  • The device operates with a human hand on the handle to maintain proper distraction of the animal. It does not operate hands-free.
  • Do not leave oral distraction device unattended when in use.
  • Any modifications of the oral device make the device ineffective.
  • Use of supplemental handling techniques must be evaluated by user.
  • Easy Boss E device has not been tested or used in Bos Indicus cattle.  Thus it is not recommended for use with Bos Indicus cattle.
