Australian Stockstill is an electronic device for the effective and humane restraint of animals. It is powered from a 6 volt dry cell battery, the type commonly used in torches. The circuit produces low energy pulses.
Invented by a South Australian industrial chemist turned sheep farmer during the mid 1970's to restrain sheep during robotic shearing. With the sheep application so successful, research turned to cattle.
The Super Stockstill has been developed for use with many species of vertebrate including cattle, horses, deer, ostriches, emus, sheep, goats, alpaca, crocodiles, and pigs.
