Amish Made Calf Blankets [Black]

Calf blankets, also referred to calf coats or calf jackets, are a cost effective tool that helps prevent cold stress in calves. Calves have a temperature range where they are considered to be comfortable, known as the thermoneutral zone. For a newborn Holstein calf, this zone is between 50 and 78¬∞F (10 to 25¬∞C). If a calf‚ temperature goes above or below these temperatures, the calf will divert its energy from growth and immune function towards maintaining its core body temperature. First, make sure the calf has good clean bedding. In the first few weeks, newborn calves spend most of the time lying down. If the bedding is dry and thick enough, it will provide a comfortable for the calf to lay and shelter itself from the cold in. If there isn‚ enough bedding, or the bedding is wet, the calf may prefer to stand, which exposes the calf to the wind. Clean and dry hair coats provide greater insulation from heat loss, so the calf‚ natural hair coat should be clean and dry before putting on a blanket. Newborn calves should have time to dry before being moved to an outdoor hutch. As the temperature drops, any moisture trapped under the blanket will cause the calf‚ body temperature to also lower.

Outer shell is water-resistant nylon, with insulated quilted interior. Leg straps are adjustable and elastic, front closure is velcro allowing a snug comfortable fit for growing calves. For warmer, drier, healthier calves, a calf jacket should always be at hand to provide a barrier against wet bedding, drafts, and cold air, allowing the calf to put its energy into growth. A Doctor’s choice for calf blankets These Amish-made, quality calf blankets buckle on the sides and Velcro in the front. The straps are adjustable and not made of elastic. Blankets have a water-resistant shell with double-stitched, heavy-duty polyester lining. Wrap the front around the neck and secure the Velcro. Buckle the rear straps by criss-crossing them underneath the calf then secure buckles (the right strap connects to the left buckle and vice-versa). Tighten leg straps if necessary. Wash between calves.
