Calf Moving SledIt's simple but it works, says Bill Lee, Camp Creek, Alberta, who came up with a nifty way to get calves home from the field along with their mothers.
Lee made a U-shaped sled out of 1-in. dia. steel tubing and stretched a sheet of canvas across the top with four holes cut in it. The calf sits on top with its legs through the holes, feet unable to reach the ground. It keeps the animal out in the open where its mother can smell it. A tow rope ties to the front crossbar on the sled.
