I have raised quite a few bulls for beef over the years, that being said. The first few I used two good quality rubber bands and twisted each one on very tight and never had any problem. After a few years I bought an Elasterator and the bands for it and it was much faster and easier to use, and not that expensive. I always put two on just to be sure. It is much less traumatic and less messy than the knife. My son still has it and uses it all the time on bull calves and buck goats.
