Covered Calves Grow Faster
In a U.S. trial on dairy calves in cold conditions (North Dakota), covered calves added 2.75kg live weight more than uncovered calves in their first three weeks. Covered beef calves added 17kg more weight than their uncovered companions, in their first 17 weeks.
It should be noted that some of our calf and cow covers are designed for therapeutic use rather than everyday wear. As over-heating can also be a problem for animals, the covers should be changed for standard 'canvas' type covers once recovery of body temperature is achieved, or weather becomes warmer.
