Moving Floor Calf Feeder

 

The Calf Feeder by Moving Floor is by far the easiest modular system that can automate calf feeding even to small groups of calves. The milk is mixed in a plastic bag with compressed air. Every other day, the old bag is replaced with a new bag. RFID indicates how much milk or concentrate feed that the calf should have. Simple and ingenious. 

 

This is how it works: Concentrate feed

1. The calf carry an ear tag with RFID. The ear tag is read and will grant/not grant the calf permission to eat concentrate

2. The calf is given a small amount of concentrate feed that the calf easily finishes. A sound indication will teach the calf the correlation between putting her head by the feed tray and getting feed. A programmed feed curve indicates the calf maximum intake per day.

This is how it works: Milk

3. Compressed air is led down through the channels of the bag. The milk is mixed as the air bubbles up. The programmed feeding curve decides the amount and timing of milk to be given to the calf.


 

Save time

Time efficiency in calf rearing can be improved. Rationalize your day-to-day work and spend the time earned on the animals themselves.

Hygiene

is of great importance. A sterile, disposable mixing bowl is far superior to a washed mixing bowl.

Increased growth

Calves on Moving Floor has a general 20-30% increased average daily weight gain. Conformity of feeding is an important factor.

Cost effective

The modular system of Moving Floor Calf Feeder makes it cost effective to mechanize event the feeding of small groups of calves.
