What is the cost of infusion relative to the cost of dehorning?

The fixed costs associated with an infusion procedure (which includes immobilization and recovery, DNA sampling, microchipping, labour, insurance cover, pregnancy testing, ear notching and the actual devaluation/infusion) amounts to approximately R8000 per animal. The cost of an average dehorning procedure totals roughly R7000. The prices are therefore very similar, except that dehorning would need to be repeated twice as frequently as devaluation procedures.
