With calving season quickly approaching, it’s time to make sure you have all your calving equipment and supplies ready to go at a moment’s notice. And this season, FBN® launched a new product to help make the preparation process simpler than ever. 

Now available through FBN Direct®, the new FBN Calving Kit includes: 

  • OB Chain 60"

  • OB Handles

  • Elastrator Bands

  • Allflex Tag Pen Black

  • Iodine 1% 16 oz

  • Chlorhexidine Solution 2% 16 oz

  • General Lube 8 oz 

  • OB Standard Sleeve 10 count

  • Shop towels

Developed in collaboration with FBN veterinarians and FBN members like Mike Galloway, rancher, farmer, and creator of Our Wyoming Life, the concept of an all-in-one kit “really struck home for me,” he explains in a new FBN Calving Kit unboxing video

When calving season approaches, “I have to go find all my stuff, I have to put it all together, and I’m always missing something,” Galloway says. “So when [FBN] said they were doing a calving kit, I was very excited about it and I asked how I could help. I went back and forth with the team that put together this kit and helped them narrow down which items we may need.”

With all included supplies stored inside a convenient plastic tote, the FBN Calving Kit makes it easy to keep everything you need for calving organized and ready to go. 

“A lot of times, calving catches you off guard… you’re waiting for it, but you don’t know when it’s going to happen. The first one that hits the ground is usually a surprise — and I can tell you, nine times out of 10, you’re not prepared for it,” says Galloway. “You don’t know where your tagging gun is, you don’t know where your medication is, you don’t know where your iodine is — so that’s exactly what this kit is here to help you with. It’s something you can have in your pickup with you, so when you do have that first calf you’ve got everything you need.”

Get everything you need for a successful calving season with the all-in-one FBN Calving Kit. Equipped with an OB standard sleeve, elastrator bands, tag pens, iodine, chlorhexidine solution and more calving essentials, the new FBN Calving Kit helps you check everything off your list with just one click on FBN Direct®.
