These masks have 2 options available to connect the mask behind the ears.
The first pictures on the left shows the adjustable quick release closure.This can be adjusted to fit as needed using the slide, the quick release buckle or both. Once adjusted, you don't have to adjust it again. Just release to take if off and snap it together to put it back on.
The other type of closure is also adjustable and consist of a 1 1/2" metal slide & webbing sewn only on one end and a long piece of 1 1/2" webbing sewn on the other end.
To adjust this type, you have to put the webbing in the slide and tighten or loosen up to get it to fit properly.
If your cow has horns you would have to take the webbing out of slide to put it off and on.
The slide/webbing throat latch works the same way.
When ordering you'll see 2 options where you can select which type of closure behind ears and which type of throat latch. You "must" select one of the options for each closure.
NOTICE: Shoppers PLEASE READ:
Effective, Aug. 6, 2021.
I am taking orders again for the cow fly masks.
NOTICE: Please do not order more than 10 made to order cow masks per customer per week. These are not in stock and are made as I get orders for them.
If I get behind on orders I will have to disable the order form link again so I can get caught up.
I will probably only cut out orders once/twice a week to cut down on being around my help and them around me.
Please allow from 3-10 business days for made to order items to be finished and mailed.
Due to skyrocketing Covid cases in NC, I may have to stop taking any orders for made to order items and only take orders for ready to ship items. I'll post updates regarding this.
If you need something quick, you can order a ready to ship cow mask on my ready to ship page if I have time to get any done to add to that page.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
My cow fly masks are constructed of the same name brand UV poly mesh I use for my horse fly masks. They are bound in black binding.
These are my own patterns from doing months of research with cattle breeders and making and sending prototypes to get patterns and sizes worked out for all sizes of cattle.
These can have either a hook/loop closure or metal slide/webbing adjustment throat latch.
Click on the link below for mesh colors.
Please check out pictures of different breeds of cattle on my customer page links below. I try to put the breed of cattle, age and size of mask to help with ordering.

This is a 2 year old Scotthish Highlander cow wearing a medium size cow mask
This is a Butterscotch, a 12 year old mixed breed cow wearing a large fly mask.
Use this diagram and picture below to help you determine which size is best.
It's best to measure center of eye to center of eye or from outside corners of eyes.
This is the blue line on the diagram.
GUIDELINES ON SIZING.
If measurement at red line on Dexter below is:
21"-24" you need the XXsmall
23"-26" you need the Xsmall.
28"-32" you need the small.
36"-40" you need the medium.
44"-48" you need the large.
This sizes above are with the hook and loop adjustment as shown on the red mask at the top of the page.
The metal slide/webbing adjustment as shown on the celery mask at the top of the page will adjust a few inches smaller and can be adjusted a few inches longer than the smallest and largest measurement above.
The metal slide/webbing throat latch works good for cattle that are between sizes or for cattle with really thick throats.
Cow masks are another method of helping prevent the spread of pink eye without the use of chemical fly sprays.
These are the 2 styles of my UV mesh cow fly masks.
The mask on the left has a metal slide/webbing throat latch adjustment. This style is good for cows with a thick throat/neck since it allows for more adjustment.
The mask on the right has the hook/loop closure.
Hook/Loop is the generic name for this brand name closure. It's the same closure I've been using, just a different name.
SEE below for link to mesh fabrics and prices.
This is a 3-4 month old hereford/braham cross wearing a small fly mask.

I only ship within the USA.
