Buy calf coat and cow blanket

  • supports the immune system, especially in the first few days
  • prevents diarrhoea and other health problems

A calf coat ensures that newborn calves dry faster and that the fur can develop its insulating effect. Especially weak, sick calves benefit from a calf rug.

A cow blanket warms full-grown cows and large cattle. Especially when cows are sick or downer, the cow blanket helps to keep the animal warm. Livestock blankets are also used for protection at exhibitions. Our cow blankets and calf blankets are all breathable and prevent excessive sweating of the cow. Furthermore our cow and calf blankets are machine washable at 30 °C.
