Bag Balm Ointment
Used for over 100 years on cattle, horses and other domestic animals. It's loaded with lanolin! For CATTLE: Helps soothe small injuries, rash chapping; massage on caked bag. Softens and moistens skin.
Bag Balm Dilators
Helps soothe bruised, sore or injured teats. Packed in Bag Balm ointment, these dilators are super flexible. They help keep the teat canal open for easier milking.
Bag balm is also great for saddle sores, or any other abrasion. After you talk yourself past the fact that the stuff is made to soothe cow udders, you can realize the beauty of BAG BALM. Smear some Dobble-B on saddle sores, chapped lips or scrapes to soothe and speed healing. It also works reasonably well as chamois lube, it's thick and tenacious enough. However petroleum jelly breaks down certain materials so check with your shorts manufacturer before rubbing it on your chamois.
Why Bag Balm is Better:
Made differently (beware of the imitators)
Others may cost more, and may claim more. So look for the familiar green can with red clover on the lid. We're in drugstores, farm stores, pet stores, hardware stores, feed stores, and tack shops all across the country.
For over a century, Bag Balm has been a fixture around farms. It all started in 1899, after John L. Norris bought the formula for Bag Balm from its original creator in the little town of Wells River, Vermont. The salve was created to soften cow udders, and it worked extremely well.
The little green can stood out from the rest.
Bag Balm's "packaging" (practically an unheard of marketing term in those days) would prove to stand the test of time with as much distinction as the product itself. Mr. Norris traveled from Lyndonville, Vermont to Boston to design the original can. Its distinctive, dominant green color accented by red lettering and red clover surrounding a cow's head on the top of the lid has remained virtually unchanged for over 100 years.
From a Vermont village to all reaches of the world…
Word spread quickly about how well Bag Balm worked, and soon the little green can was turning up in farms across the country. Unfortunately, Mr. Norris became ill in 1934 and summoned his son John to take over the operation of the company. Just 20 years old at the time, John had considerable musical talent and was training under the world renowned flautist George Barrere—making arduous weekly trips to New York City for his instruction. Although music remained a great love for John his entire life, his focus became the rapid growth of Dairy Association's flagship product, Bag Balm.
