There is a long tradition of using jute for calf covers. The material is warm and strong, with lots of trapped air for insulation and breathability. Our product development team have designed their new Farmhand™ cover to be quick and easy to fit. There is no neck strap. Just pull on over the head like a jersey, then secure the hind strap. (Dimension is length along back of cover.)
This cover is made from high-quality polyester rip-stop material which will stand up to heavy use. Water and wind resistance is high. Material will not flap in the wind like plastic covers do, thus keeping the calf warmer and calmer. Cover features elastic loops for hind legs and quick-fit Velcro neck buckle. These make for quick and easy fitting and removal. The vulnerable neck-strap area is substantially reinforced for long service life. Dimension is length along back of cover.
From the same family as famous Woolover lamb covers, these calf covers are made from 70% wool and 30% Polyester. The wool retains body heat and protects from cold winds or rain, while the Polyester gives strength to the cover. These covers breath to allow escape of water vapour. Calves wearing Woolovers grow faster, require less feed and stay healthier. Well worth the cost. Woolover ‘Ultra’ covers feature an extra outer waterproof shell of Emphatex to keep your calves warm and dry, even in the most extreme conditions. The Emphatex also extends the cover life considerably, and is resistant to dirt, manure and bedding. Regular Woolover covers will last about 4 calves at 3-4 weeks each. Ultra covers should last 4-5 seasons of use. Use small size for calves 35-45kg, medium for calves 45-55kg and large for calves over 55kg.
