Cozy Caps
"Frostbitten ears on calves are no longer a problem for us since my sister-in-law Jo and I came up with ęCozy Caps' to protect calves' ears," says Geralyn Johnson, Ambrose, N. Dak.
The one-piece ear protectors are made from a poly-fleece blanket material that fastens onto an elastic halter. Velcro straps are used to secure the halter under the chin and over the nose.
W "We put them on as soon as the calf is born - before it's even dry - and leave them on for a day or two until the calf toughens up. Even if the calf's ears have already been frozen, we can usually save them by having it wear the caps for a week or two," says Johnson.
Sells for $8 plus $1 S&H. Additional halters sell for 75 cents apiece.
