casting

the technique of using a rope or a special harness designed for the purpose to make an animal fall to the ground or onto a specially prepared area. Used for large animals especially horses and cattle.

casting bed
the area designated for a cast animal to fall. It is usually cushioned with straw or, in the case of a permanent facility, rubber or other synthetic padding.
Burley casting method
one that uses a rope centered over the shoulders, crossed between the front legs, crossed over the back and then passed between the hindlegs, avoiding the scrotum or udder and with traction backwards. Used in cattle.
half hitches casting method
suitable only for cattle; a non-slip knot is applied around the neck and half-hitches are placed behind the front legs and around the flanks. Traction is applied backwards.
casting harness
an arrangement of leather or webbing straps, ropes and rings is applied to the hindlegs below the pasterns with ropes running forward through a shoulder harness. Traction on the ropes pulls the legs forward and the horse falls to one side. The ropes are used to tie the legs in a convenient position. Not suitable for use with cattle.
casting pen
used at abattoirs to restrain animals that are to be slaughtered according to the Jewish law. It is a restraint cage or cradle which enables the operator to tip the animal onto its back so that it can be slaughtered while it is still conscious.
