I've castrated horses with razor blades and calves and rams with banding. Personally we had about the same amount of issues with both (I can remember one horse that got an infection and two calves, one with an infection and one that flipped out in the middle so the band didn't go on right and we had to apply another one) I personally preferred the elastrator because it was so much faster, but our tool was difficult to operate. You had to have a great deal of hand strength to open it and it tended to do this snap-jerk thing when it closed, so I would suggest that you try the tools out in a store before you buy one if you go that route. Then again ours had spent many years being kicked, dropped, banged around, etc. Another issue we had that you probably won't, one day the boss came out to do chores to find that a visiting child had not been well supervised and had banded his prize shepherd dog. That was an expensive neuter and docking.
