Quiet Wean flaps

Postby nocows » Wed Aug 01, 2018 10:15 am

I've read the various posts on here about the experience people have had with the weaning flaps, I would like to give it a try seems that most people like them overall. I've done research and from what I am reading in the reviews of the products the quiet wean brand is the way to go. There is a site that sells both the quiet wean brand as well as another brand, I'd really like to try the quiet wean brand but they are only sold in packs of 25 I only need two.......The site sells the other brand individually but it doesn't get very good reviews, people are having issues with fitment and flexibility some people commented that they are too tight and will leave abrasions in the calf's nose.

Sooooo I guess the question is should I spring for the 25 pack of the "better" flaps? is this something I will use and continue to use for years to come? I will eventually need more than just 2 but hate to spend the money for the 25 pack just to try 2 of them out. At them same time I don't want to cheap out and buy the others and have a bad experience with the whole concept of the weaning flap.

Just looking for some opinions if more people are using them and if they continue to use them.

Guess I didn't look hard enough I just assumed they had to be bought in bulk. Thanks for the link.

I’ve used the orange and the green gladiator looking flaps. I much preferred the green flaps. They were easier to put in and take out. Fewer bloody noses as well. They look a lot worse than they actually are. The cows and calves just continue as they were all summer. I threw the wing nut away lost prob about 2-5% over the years. When you pen them back up or feed them in a trough is when you lose them. Drastically reduced our need for antibiotics and shrink in the calves.
