The Long Shot syringe helps workers unable to move around quickly to medicate animals from a distance. Quick mobility (often on rough or slippery terrain) is required to sort a specific animal from the herd and restrain it to give an injection. As they scuffle around the pen, agitated animals naturally bump into the workers, even when they have full mobility.
The Long Shot is a syringe fastened to the end of an adjustable length pole. The animals are more likely to stand still in the herd when the worker is 10-feet away, allowing him to give the injection from a distance without first sorting or restraining the animal. With this tool, a worker who is moving slower than usual or has limited mobility can more safely medicate livestock, often from outside a protective gate in smaller pens.
