I'm curious - why?

I've never seen a jersey on a cow, covers yes, not jersey's. Although I have put jerseys on calves.

[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]I'm open minded and I'm looking to learn something everyday. [:D]

And what's wrong with putting a jersey on a Jersey, preferably with a Guernsey pattern :D

Sorry Production, I'm reading through your posts and it's putting a smile on my dial as I try to imagine how many circular needles one would need to knit a jumper for a cow, not to mention how much wool once would need. Actually, it would have to be a cardigan, I don't think you would be able to persuade a cow to put a jersey/jumper on.

Cheers,
Ronnie

I've seen jerseys on sheep-can send a photo-but jerseys on full size cows??!!
Why would you want to, except for some strange promotion?

I agree with Ronnie, it would have to be a button up cardy 'cos I don't fancy trying to get their head and front legs into a jersey!

I have lots of canvas covers but-imagine the wool it would take-unless it was a Dexter or a Lowline!

It would have to be an industrial size knitting machine.
Much easier to do it with a tube of stretchy fabric-if it is just the impression of a jersey, even then I can't imagine picking up each foot to put in the 'arm holes!

Must be having us all on!

Thanks Sue & Ron... yes we will be thinking through the logistics of course, but your comments are useful thank you.

Still happy to wait for a response from anyone who has some contacts that would be appropriate for us.

This is a genuine request with some rational thought processes behind it, perhaps you know a commercial machinist with a flexible mind and can do attitude? I would like to hear from you if you fit the bill.

Well for ideas here are sheep in Jerseys, and a tiny calf in a modified human jersey! :D

The sheep were part of a display at the Christchurch art gallery during Royal A& P Show week November 2006. I daresay someone down there would know more about them!

There is a company here that makes horse clothing that completely covers their belly, etc unlike most horse covers & more like a human jersey. I'm sure these could be adapted to fit cows.

I'm just trying to get their contact details for you from another forum. Will let you know. :)

Just had a look & I don't think they'll be anything close to what you're after but I've cast the net a little wider for you & can hopefully come up with some cows on a main road that will be amenable to wearing jerseys.
