Since 1899, BAG BALM has been the farmer's friend helping keep dairy cows from becoming chapped from the harsh Vermont environment, It's like having another hand on the farm or a helper around the house. BAG BALM works hard all year round - and works well. There's nothing like the original, and that's what you get when you buy this familiar green can. BAG BALM contains lanolin and stays on to provide moisturizing and softening. For pets, apply BAG BALM liberally to the affected area.
