Syrup bottle stores navel dip

Empty syrup bottles get a second life on this Wisconsin dairy. Jan Bartholomew stores iodine in a clean syrup bottle and uses it to dip the navels of newborn calves. “I tend to be very generous when doing it this way and the navels dry out well,” she says. It also makes the iodine easy to store. “Just make sure you remove the syrup labels prior to initiating use of the bottle.”
