The magnet is a special version of an actual cow magnet, which is used to prevent
 “Hardware Disease” in cows.
This cow magnet disassembles into 16 pieces (including five powerful ceramic ring magnets) for use with activities in the booklet that can be used as a lesson plan. The booklet features “Bessie Bovine” who guides youngsters through 12 exercises that teach them the principles of modern magnetism. Ages 6 and up.
 
What are Cow Magnets Used For?
Cow magnets are popular with dairy farmers and veterinarians to help prevent Hardware Disease in cattle. While grazing, cows eat everything from grass and dirt to nails, staples and bits of bailing wire (referred to as tramp iron). Tramp iron tends to lodge in the honeycombed walls of the reticulum, threatening the surrounding vital organs and causing irritation and inflammation, known as Hardware Disease. The cow loses her appetite and decreases milk output (dairy cows), or her ability to gain weight (feeder stock). Cow magnets help prevent this disease by attracting stray metal from the folds and crevices of the rumen and reticulum. One magnet works for the life of the cow!
