You can put a rope in front of the hip bones, down, around cow in front of her udder, synch up tight, real tight! She cannot lift her hind legs.

works the same way as the "can't kick" clamp, but has the same problem that it can make them fall over.. Never works if you're trying to cast them deliberately of course!

Calf looks happy there Sky!


I let her walk around the yard and pastures with me I ordered her a halter

a large adjustable dog collar works well on a calf , verses a halter easier to grab as they run by , good save on your calf
