Shearwell MET Applicator – Calf Spacer

When using the Shearwell MET applicator with calves and newborn animals it is highly recommended that the MET applicator is fitted with the Shearwell calf spacer adaptor. The calf spacer creates a safe gap between the ear and the tag for the animal’s ear to grow post application.
