Cattle Grooming & Breakdown Tips


  • Weaver's Natural Adhesive:
    Natural Adhesive is a light-weight starter adhesive for legs and body hair.  For use on animals with well trained hair to give a clear look that is easy to comb through.
  • Weaver's Medium Adhesive:
    Medium Adhesive is a strong leg adhesive, used on medium length, and thinner hair for a more natural appearance.  Its strong holding power is ideal for untrained hair.
  • Weaver's Strong & Firm Adhesive:
    Strong Adhesive is the strongest adhesive for tails and legs.  To build legs, shake can and turn upside down spraying medium coats where a fuller look is desired.  To achieve desired look, this process may need multiple coats, allowing time to dry between each coat.  For a finished look, use Stierwalt's Stierwalt's Paints in the color of your choice. 
  • Weaver's ProEnhancer:
    Using adhesives alone, gaps and holes may remain in the leg hair that prevent a balanced appearance. ProEnhancer increases the volume of leg hair by coating each shaft individually without clumping and filling the gaps to prevent see-through while creating the appearance of bigger leg bone. ProEnhancer's quick drying action allows it to be easily clipped and covered with touch up paint for a ring-ready look. Recommended for show day use only on both black and colored cattle.
