Castro enables the training of various invasive skills in the first week of life of a piglet - from handling to the surgical castration.
With its exchangeable training modules, our Castro enables the practical simulation of all invasive procedures in the first week of a piglet's life. Not only visually but also haptically, it conveys the impression of a lifelike piglet with its skin-like surface and a weight of 2.5 kg. Thanks to the integrated hip and shoulder joints, Castro can be fixed in a wide variety of positions and handling can be simulated flexibly.
Surgical castration can be performed lifelike on the integrated castration module. After a surgical incision through the outer skin, the testicles can be moved forward, the spermatic cords can be cut and the wound can be treated. In addition to castration, the testicle module also enables controlled training of tail docking. After successful training, the module can be exchanged with only one hand movement and Castro is ready for the next application.
The training of i.m. injections, for example in the context of iron injection, can be simulated on the integrated i.m. module. After repeated use, the i.m. module can also be easily replaced.
