Calf Self Feeder is the easy way to give milk to calves that don’t require hand-feeding.
MILK BAR™ Winner of the designer performance application award at the 1991 New Zealand National Field Days. This style of Milk Bar Calf Self Feeder has two compartments each holding a half-gallon of milk replacer which makes it easy to see that each calf is getting the proper amount. The exclusive nipple design of the Milk Bar slows down gulping which prevents choking and also promotes salivation, which is essential for proper digestion and stomach development. Patented E-Z lock mounting bracket will fit any rail width from wire up to 2.5 inches, will lock in place, yet is easily removed with a light touch of the catch. Durable grey poly container hooks onto wire or one-by-four wood rail and the gravity-flow nipples require no valves or tubes. Capacity 1 gallon (1/2 gallon per compartment.) Easy teaching of new calves. The suckling action required to feed from a Milk Bar Teat is the same as feeding from a cow, so most calves will teach themselves to feed.. Easy to use. The unique solid moulded handle makes it a one handed operation to carry the Milk Bar 5, whether full or empty, and push the hooks over the rail for a snug fit. You don't have to get in the pen with your calves. The Milk Bar 5 hooks on the rail, so you stay outside the pen or group hutch. Easy cleaning. The Milk Bar 2 is washed like a bucket, and the teats "milked" to clean them. We recommend using warm water and an alkali dairy detergent. Milk bar Teats do not need to be removed from the feeder for cleaning.
The ideal rail height for the Milk Bar is 3ft above the ground. This gets the teats 2 ft above the ground, which our trials have shown is the ideal teat height as it is close to the natural feeding height for calves. .
