Thermoo

$75.00

Keeping newborn and young calves warm is a basic requirement for optimum health.  Calves are born with minimal fat reserves and a high surface area to bodyweight ratio making them susceptible to cold.  By using the a Thermoo calf rug your calf can divert available energy to more effective needs such as feeding, building immunity, and growth.

It has been proven that below 10 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit) ambient temperature, the rate of colostral antibody absorption in newborns decreases (Olsen et al, 1981).  By maintaining calf warmth you can ensure that your calves receive maximum benefit from the colostrum you have carefully supplied.

Calves in cold environments also require more milk per day for maintenance due to energy lost through heat production, increasing labour and feed costs.

The Thermoo has been specially designed for calves and has unique features making it the most practical calf cover available.
