An unbreakable bottle holder

keeps calf bottle in place

Our calves tended to destroy the bottle holders we've purchased in the past, so we created this alternative. After some construction on the farm, we had extra pieces of rebar and other steel rods available. We welded them together to make a nearly indestructible bottle holder for our calves. Our calf pens are made from hog panels, and these holders fit perfectly.
