For those of you who have been asking for lighter weight, slightly shorter on the neck like our Regular/Large and Reg Small, but softer yet for the calves comfort...here it is with our Small Lite! The neoprene insulation on this one is only 3mm thick, which makes it more flexible then any other calf hood we have offered. We would recommend this one more for in barn use or where temps do not drop to extreme sub-zero F temps, as we have not tested this one in extreme cold. However, please let us know if you have found it works well with extreme cold conditions. This hood material may flex for use on a little larger calf too...Supply is limited on this lighter weight neoprene.
You dried your cold weather born newborn calf in the warming box...turned em out with his mama and her very wet mothering cow licks and the ears still froze! That could mean a .03 to .06 cents and sometimes lots more per pound of lost profit!!
Save Me Ears close cell neoprene can protect the calf ears from mothering cow licks just during the first chilly night of life when the temps (or wind chill) drop below freezing temperatures, when newborn ears are most likely to freeze. Especially the first 24 hours the cow licks her calf the most. Keeps the ears warmed by the calves own natural body heat held by a specially designed air pocket along sides of the calves neck. This Small size normally fits calves weighing 60 to 80 pounds, or calves with smaller then average beef breeds heads. Since this Lite weight is more stretchy, it might fit some calves up to 90 pounds, depending on their head size.
Please note, many Angus and other breeders with calves with smaller heads, seem to prefer the small size. But some use the regular size also. Some breeders will split their order to include both sizes.
