Cattle cards; tags; a rope; Pen-Strep and more – check out the entire list here!

Cattle cards; tags; a rope; Pen-Strep and more – check out our list of 10 items that you could find in a farm jeep.

  1. Cattle passports or the ‘blue cards’

Cattle passports; mart documentation and factory returns, it’s ‘an office on wheels’ you claim! Some even bring a sick calf in the back of the jeep for a speedy trip to the vets!

  1. Taggers & tags!

You have to be prepared at all times, we guess!

  1. Bailing twine and a rope.

You never know when a gate could swing open or when a beast needs to be halter-trained!

  1. All essential calving equipment!

Gloves; ropes; vet lube – the whole job lot and maybe an AI docket or two thrown into the mix too!

  1. A varied range of suitable footwear.

Mart boots; wellies and even a pair of shoes for those trips to town.

  1. Animal Medicine

You never know when you will require Pen-Strep; a syringe and a stomach tube.

  1. A Penknife

Again, you never know what unexpected eventualities that may spring up along the way.

  1. A selection of rosettes that you picked up at various shows.

Prestigious ribbons from Agricultural shows and marts should be on display, even if that does mean hanging them off the rear-view mirror of your jeep!

  1. A historic collection of bovine A.I. catalogues.

You have been building up this pile for over two decades now and the majority of the bulls featured are ancient memories.

  1. Your entire wardrobe.

Your mart attire; farming gear; overalls and a jacket that you can be seen wearing around a town when collecting an injection from the vet’s office.
