Dehorning 3 - 7 days old calves : * Clip off the hair over and around the horn button. * With a wood applicator, apply the paste to a spot the size of a quarter once only. * Apply as soon as the horn button can be felt - when the calf or kid is three (3) to seven (7) days old. * Keep the animal tied away from others and out of the rain for at least six (6) hours. Dehorning Older Calves : * To dehorn older calves, six (6) to eight (8) weeks of age, where the horn button has started to grow, remove the hair and roughen a ring approximately one-quarter (1/4) inch wide around the base of the horn where it joins the skin, with a small scraper or file (do not draw blood). The reason it is advisable to remove the hair over the horn button before applying the paste is that it is then easier to see that the application is in the right place and in direct contact with the skin. * Apply a thin film of paste over the horn button and over the roughened ring around the horn button. * Apply once only. * Be particular to apply a thin even coating and only as directed. * To further contain the Dehorning Paste, form a ring of udder balm or petroleum jelly around the horn button prior to application.

Dehorning paste typically contains two caustic substances: calcium hydroxide and sodium hydroxide. When applied to the horn bud, the paste causes a chemical burn that destroys horn-producing cells. A thin film about the size of a nickel is all that's required. When horn-producing cells are destroyed, horns don't grow.
