Cruise Control Cable Halter is made of 1/8″ galvanized 7 x 19 cable. This is the original model and is to be used on milder attitude calves, with smaller issues such as leading or holding head high.
Cruise Control Calf Cable was developed some 25 years ago to help young showmen control their show cattle. For those unruly calves that won’t walk, are hard to control, and just won’t cooperate in the show ring.
Cruise Control Cables are completely adjustable. Please be sure to tighten all screws before use and any time you adjust. Regarding the fit of halter, make sure that you have little to no slack.
For maximum effectiveness, tie your calf daily using the halter and a rope lead, with head high. After several days, you will see the change. Soreness is not unusual, if this occurs, give the calf a break. If calf loses respect for the cable, go back to tying head high on a daily basis. *Note: We only suggest to use cable halters as recommended above. We do not use this halter for breaking calves. They must be broke to tie before you can or should use it. The cable is not harmful to the calf in any way, if used as suggested.
You can use the halters in all aspects of daily care, as well as in the show ring! If using in the show ring, put a leather show halter (SOLD SEPARATELY) over the cable with nylon/leather lead attached. We have found the best way to do this is to use a cable tie on the right side and on the left side, run your snap lead through the O ring of leather halter.
