Subject: Calf weighing sling or cradle advice

Southern Oregon
I'm looking for suggestions on a good sling or cradle that can be used for weighing newborn calves by myself.
I've included a picture of our setup from since time began. It's kinda like grandpa's hammer, replace the wires every few years and the board every decade or so. Lol. It works great if theres a second person to hold the wires around the calf. However in recent times I am on my own for a lot of calving and want to get set up better for weighing calves sans assistance. Any suggestions on a good sling or cradle or something that I can put around the calf and have it stay on its own or be easy to hold with my arms wrapped around the calf while I lift it up to the scale? I'm sure if I put my mind to it I'll come up with something, but I'd much rather find something to buy. Thanks!
