Calving First Aid Kit

Everyone has a first aid kit ready to go in their cupboard, and the same should be said for having an easily accessible “calving kit” ready before calving. It can be on the quad, at the calf pens or at the shed, whatever is easiest. We are more than happy to put together a box of supplies for you if time is short.
