The Calf Weaner Large, Yellow with Stainless Steel Screw is a durable and reusable device designed to aid in the weaning process of calves. It is constructed from heavyweight plastic, ensuring longevity and the ability to withstand the rigors of farm use. The stainless steel screw and nut assembly is robust, providing a secure fit when applied. The weaner is easy to apply and remove, with spikes that face the calf to prevent it from sucking while still allowing it to graze and have physical contact with the cow. This method of weaning is known to reduce stress for both the calf and the cow, and is suitable for calves up to 18 months of age. The device's design is lightweight, minimizing discomfort for the calf. For optimal results, it is typically recommended to leave the weaners on the calves for 4-7 days before separating them from their mothers. This practice not only facilitates a smoother transition from milk to grass but also helps prevent diseases that may arise from continued suckling. The Calf Weaner Large, Yellow with Stainless Steel Screw is a practical tool for farmers looking to implement an efficient and humane weaning strategy

To properly apply the Calf Weaner Large, Yellow with Stainless Steel Screw, ensure that the calf is restrained safely to prevent injury. Clean the weaner device before use. Open the screw enough to fit the calf's muzzle, and position the weaner so that the spikes face towards the calf. The spikes should prevent the calf from nursing but allow for grazing and drinking water. Secure the device by tightening the screw, but be careful not to over-tighten, as this could cause discomfort or harm to the calf. Check the fit to ensure it is snug but not too tight, allowing for some movement. It's important to monitor the calf after application to ensure it is not experiencing any distress and that the weaner remains properly in place. After the recommended period, usually 4-7 days, the weaner can be removed by loosening the screw and gently sliding the device off the calf's muzzle. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions and consult with a veterinarian if you are unsure about the process

Specifically designed to stop calves from suckling. Durable plastic with Stainless Steel wing screw.
