Bala-Calfa – The Bovine Balaclava 

by Bala-Calfa

Made in Eckville



Calves born in winter are prone to frozen ears, which is both painful for them and reduces their market value. Bala-Calfa saw a gap in the market and created these waterproof neoprene hoods. Our judges felt it was important to note that they’re also super cute.
