This Makes my Life Easier: Expandable Folder
The team at Birchen Farms Inc. in Pearl City, Illinois, uses this expandable folder that’s prepacked with everything needed to process newborn calves. Each section holds a zippered plastic bag so an employee can pull one bag and go to work rather than collect supplies from multiple spots.
Included in each bag:
- Calf card: The employee uses this to write all the information about the calf, birth, and colostrum and vaccination administration.
- Ear tag and button: These are arranged in numerical order in the folder so calves are properly identified.
- Proper Inforce® 3 dose with cannula, syringe and needle.
Jen Birchen, the farm’s youngstock manager, said, “If you make it simple, it happens!”
