Need help stopping hair slippage ASAP!

Is there a way I can try to stop hair slippage on a corsican ram quickly? It is saturday I cant order anything. I noticed it was slipping while I was skinning out the hooves. The whole skin is fleshed and now salted.

I would skip the salting, I think its to far gone, remember this is the time of year animals shed thier hair!

I would mix a pickle 1.0 pH and put in 2 lbs salt per gallon and go straight into the pickle with it.


Stop Rot? Denatured alcohol?

Never tried Stop Rot, myself. I've used denatured alcohol on thin-skinned animals such as a bobcat, but don't know if it would work on a thicker-skinned animal such as a goat or deer.

You can buy the smaller cans of denatured at Wally World, etc. Ours will only let you purchase one can at a time...something to do with manufacturing meth (Missouri, unfortunately, has a real problem with that). I buy the gallon cans at the lumber yard/home supply place. It runs about $10/gallon here.

TRY USING LYSOL, THE KIND YOU MOP WITH. IT KILLS THE BACTERIA THAT CAUSES THE HAIR TO SLIP. HAS WORKED FOR ME,WITH WONDERFUL RESULTS. HOPE THIS HELPS.
