COW MAGNETS : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Does anyone know how to get cow magnets? I had gotten some when I lived up north, from a slaughter house. They are put down thier throats to attract bits of steel in the stomachs to avoid re-chewing in the cud. I don't have cattle, the mags. are just REAL handy to carry around. Lemme know. Thanx Duane

I can't believe your local feed store doesn't stock them. Well Nasco does. Their 2001 catalog, page 131, $3.05 each.

Your local vet should have them on hand.

At your local recycling center (AKA the dump) you might be able to get the magnets out of old speakers or radioes. Sometimes the magnets from the speakers are quite powerful.
