New Way to Bring Calves Home
You can move calves without ever having to lift them by hand with the new Calf Tote invented by Leonard Berghoefer, Hampton, Iowa.
The new two-wheeled cart is equipped with long handles in front and a pair of pair of curved prongs in back. You slide the prongs under the calf and then lower the handles to lift it off the ground.
"I designed it after I developed back problems and could no longer lift a struggling 70 to 100-lb. calf. The calf rests on the carrier in a natural position, and the cow's natural instinct causes her to follow behind. You can pull the cart behind an ATV for long distances. By bracing the handles on a fence rail, you can use the cart as a portable treatment table for vaccine shots, ear tags, etc. By removing four pins, you can slip the prongs out and replace them with a box for use as a utility cart."
Available with pneumatic or solid rubber tires. Sells for about $400.
