The Calf Caddy takes work out of sorting pairs while gently and calmly luring the mother cow anywhere. The Caddy allows one man to move a cow/calf pair with ease. It simply clamps on or off any 1 7/8” or 2” Ball on a bumper or drawbar.
Once the calf is positioned in the Caddy cradle to appear to be standing up, the instinctively follows. You can easily set up your calving operation to calve in one area and move the pair to another to keep you watching to a minimum. It also offers an easy way to tag, vaccinate and give boluses standing up, eliminating you from kneeling down and holding the calf. A quick detach allows you to take the Calf Caddy to the calf, load and easily carry with handles at waist level. Plastic protects the umbilical cord from freezing to the steel frame. The calf caddy is easily released by lowering the caddy to the ground.
