The jacket's clip-up back end is "suitable for keeping an eye out for scouring or smaller calves."

A farmer’s wife – who is based in the UK - has designed her next generation of calf jackets.

Mandy Mitchells has created a twin jacket for 30kg calves and medium to large adjustable jackets suitable for 40kg calves up to 3-4-months of age.

Features

The breathable jackets have several new features including a clip-up back end. “This is suitable for keeping an eye out for those scouring or smaller calves; lengthen it as they grow.”

“No more manure on the inside of jackets keeping cleaner all-round/ better stockmanship.”

The stretchy elasticated belly band and leg straps allow for a comfortable fit at all times; there is a velcro part at the front under the clip to keep sides warm around the calf’s neck.

“No back-belly band - more hygienic for bull calves urinating and all navels aren’t rubbed,” she explained in a post on social media.

Two colours available for bulls and heifers, making stock management easier.

Information

Jackets are priced at £20 each (approximately €22) - for further information, see Facebook.
