Chains & Ropes

Lowest-cost calving rope option. 7mm polypropylene rope. Single version is 1.1m long with eye splice one end. (Two of these should be used for assisting calving.) The double version is 1.6m long with eye splices at both ends. Supplied each.

Flat-braid rope is softer than twisted rope. There is no core in it so it flattens around a limb, in this case to 12mm wide. 1.8m length is long enough to circle your body for better purchase. Use as a single or double. Use colours to identify left/right legs when not visible. Length 1.8m
