Ear flaps are Created for calves to stop them getting frostbite are a real thing.The invention was born an ocean away from Ireland. Its creator is a farmer named Holly Poad, who came up with the idea when she was looking for ways to keep her cattle warm in the harsh winter, after losing her barn in a fire.
Freezing Cold Solution
Faced with these low temperatures, Poad decided to buy jackets and earmuffs and adapt them to keep her cattle warm.People decided to combine fleece with a water-repellant material on the outside, and adjustable straps that fasten using Velcro.
Close to 40 degrees below zero
Inventors decided to use bright colors so that the earmuffs will easily found in snow in case the animal managed to remove them.
Thus, with a little luck and a lot of ingenuity, a business was born: Poad began selling her design at $20 per pair. She published it on her farm’s Facebook page and on several show cattle social media groups, and orders started flowing in. “I thought we’d maybe sell 5, 10 pairs. I didn’t think it was going to be anything that big,” she said.
