At customer request, Think Livestock has until now; been stocking hand sanitiser. However, as this is not a mainstay product for us; we have decided to clear-out our remaining stock.
Hand sanitser 75% 500ml bottles, are available for our cost price of $13.00 EX gst. Previous purchase limits have been removed, and orders will be served on a first come, first serve basis. Once supplies are gone, we won’t be restocking; so if you need any, now is the time to buy at a steeply discounted price.

Hydrometers for Zinc Sulphate Testing in Sheep Footbaths
Zinc sulphate testers are used by sheep farmers to check the concentration level of zinc sulphate in sheep foot baths.
The product consists of a small glass tube with an enclosed weight to keep it standing upright in a container holding a sample of the footbath solution. The tube is marked by level indicators. The higher the concentrationof zinc sulphate the more buoyancy is created so the tube floats higher up for the higher concentrations and sinks lower down for low concentrations. The farmer just needs to read off the height level against the surface of the water to determine the remaining concentration of zinc sulphate.
