has been a brutally cold winter all across the country and Mother Nature doesn’t care that it’s calf season. Now is the time to buy a calf warmer as your calves are being born now. Make sure you are ready so your young ones are able to recover from the birthing process while out in the cold pasture.
Our calf warmers offer the best possible care for a newborn calf. They’re made of long-lasting polyethylene for durability and easy cleaning and create the perfect closed environment for a newborn during those first critical hours after birth.
The heater, located in a separate enclosure at the rear of the calf warmer, uses a circulating fan and automatic shutoff thermostat to regulate air flow and keep vulnerable newborn calves warm. The inside has enough room so they can either stand or lie down. The calf’s instinctive identity scent is not removed, so waiting mothers will reclaim their rejuvenated infants at once.
You can also but just the heaters because it needs a properly function heater to protect your animal. Make sure yours is in good working order or get an extra one to have on had in case you need another one quickly. Don’t end up trying to keep your newborns warm in the cab of your truck!
Now is also the time to think about getting prepared with a calving pen or maternity pen. There are two types of calving pens to help you sort calves from difficult heifers. All sides of the square calving pen have an in-and-out swing gate and latch for easy access from any direction. The circular maternity pen has a confinement area that includes nursing panels on two sides. You can get an optional self-catching head-gate with either model to hold them safely.
