This one has a 8" stripe of reflective tape across the forehead of the hood, to help you find your calves in the dark. We had a customer who requested that, and he said they love it for night time LED flashlight checks! So, now and then we will offer a limited amount....You dried your cold weather born newborn calf in the warming box...turned em out with his mama 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 20-25 degrees F 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
A few customers had been asking for slightly lighter weight, slightly shorter on the neck length and softer, and here it is! So, it is now 4mm thick, which makes it softer and more flexible but still Mama cow tough, and we have reduced the length from the back of the head back towards the shoulder by over an inch allowing more neck movement on shorter necked calves...Supply is limited, but we will be adding new stock if needed, as materials arrive to build them, through March! Check the unit count in this page to see the number currently available.
Please note, many Angus and other breeders with calves with smaller heads, do prefer this size. Some may want to consider the regular size also. Some breeders will split their order to include both sizes. As example many Angus breeders will order 1 large to every 2 small ones, or they order all small size. But Gelbvieh breeders often order 1 small one to every 2 large size ones, and some only order the large size. Some Simmental breeders have been breeding for small narrow faces on their calves to reduce calving difficulty, and those find the small size fits their 100# calves.
