Calf Carrier For One-Horse Buggies
The extruded 5/8-in. aluminum tubing platform weighs only 18 lbs., but can support a 300-lb. load.
A special "calf cage" for hauling small livestock and pets is designed to fit on the platform. It measures 3 ft. high, 24 in. wide and 42 in. long and folds down flat when not in use.
"We use it to haul calves, sheep, goats or whatever," says Malva Nisley, developer of the carrier system. "This lets us get by without having to have a $1,000 hack for hauling livestock or hire a trucker."
The carrier platform is priced at $220. The cage is priced at $140. A second smaller wire enclosure has 16-in. high sides, but no top and is available for $49.65. It has an optional tarp priced at $21.50.
