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
This is how it works: Milk
Time efficiency in calf rearing can be improved. Rationalize your day-to-day work and spend the time earned on the animals themselves.
is of great importance. A sterile, disposable mixing bowl is far superior to a washed mixing bowl.
Calves on Moving Floor has a general 20-30% increased average daily weight gain. Conformity of feeding is an important factor.
The modular system of Moving Floor Calf Feeder makes it cost effective to mechanize event the feeding of small groups of calves.
