New-Style Belt For Pulling Calves
Use your body weight to pull a calf but keep your hands free to help assist the birth.
That's the idea behind the dairy-farmer designed Gibbins Calving Belt marketed by the English firm, Alfred Cox (Surgical) Ltd.
A spokesperson for the company reports that the belt lets you maintain pressure for longer periods. You can use it with either standing or lying animals.
The 2-in. wide belt goes around your waist. Two adjustable ropes connect it to the calf's legs. A neck rope is also provided. In case of problems, each leg rope has a quick release fastener.
Sells for right at $50.
