One of the ways we care for our animals is to vaccinate our calves against certain bovine diseases or illnesses that may sicken or kill them.
Many vaccines lose efficacy when it is too hot or too cold. So, it is critical that the vaccine we administer hasn’t been compromised by fluctuating temperatures.

In order to keep our vaccine syringes from getting too warm while we are processing calves, my husband did a little modifying on a travel cooler. He cut three holes in the lid of the cooler and then inserted plastic pipe in the holes. The syringes fit in those slots perfectly! We keep the cooler full of ice packs and place a small thermometer inside, as well, to make sure we keep everything at the appropriate temperature.
