Bale Ring Makes Quick Calf Catcher
Warren MacLennan uses a modified hay bale ring to catch new calves safely. Attached to the front of his loader-mounted bale carrier, the ring offers a safe place to work calves.
  “It is always tricky working new calves, but the bale ring lets me do it without worrying about the mother,” says MacLennan.
  The only modification needed on the ring was to add 2 chain anchor rings separated by about a third of the ring circumference. To use, MacLennan approaches the bale ring opposite the anchor rings and slips the bale spears into it. He then runs chains from the anchoring rings to the top of the bale carrier frame.
  “I can drive up to a calf and lower the ring over it,” says MacLennan. “The calf can’t get out easily, but I can easily slip between the bars.”
