Matador Cartridges

When stunning with a captive bolt pistol, it is essential that you select the correct grade of cartridge for the animal’s size.

If the grain used is too low then a shorter tonic phase is more likely which, in turn, increases the risk of an animal regaining consciousness before sticking. This compromises both the animal’s welfare and the operator’s safety; the livestock is not insensitive at the point of despatch and there is a significantly increased threat of injury to the sticker from involuntary kicking.

If the cartridge is too powerful there are also numerous drawbacks:

- Heavier cartridges cost more – using the wrong one wastes money
- Excessive wear on the firing chamber increases maintenance requirements; increasing spare parts costs and delivering a less effective stun as performance tails off

In either of the above cases a processor is risking their 2009/1099/EC compliance by not following manufacturer’s recommendations for most effective use of their equipment.
