Intensive calf feeding right from the start is the most important factor for strong and healthy herds of dairy cattle. Usually it’s time limitations that get in the way of intensive feeding. Thankfully, there’s an automated solution, called CalfRail: Feed your calves in individual pens up to eight times daily and save valuable work time every day!
The fully automatic feeding box that comes to your calves: CalfRail moves to the individual boxes and supplies the calves with freshly prepared feed up to eight times daily at the optimal feed temperature. Up to 50 calves can be fed intensively with fresh milk or milk powder feed. CalfRail features fully automatic self-cleaning after each feeding, thereby guaranteeing the highest level of hygiene.
The CalfRail is controlled and supplied by a VARIO automatic feeder.
The CalfRail has a feed key that when pressed causes a small amount of feed to be dispensed – so calves become accustomed quickly and conveniently directly after receiving colostrum! Your calves will benefit from feeding tailored to their needs: age-appropriate portions spread throughout the day as well as the optimal feed temperature ensure relaxed feeding and good digestion.
Gain time independence: CalfRail and the automatic feeder prepare feed and perform automatic feeding, so you no longer have to transport and clean calf feed buckets!
Our VARIO automatic feeder simultaneously supplies feeding boxes and CalfRail with freshly-prepared feed. When calves are moved to different pens, CalfRail can easily be programmed to serve a particular group. The calves’ data is automatically transferred, giving you an ideal overview of the entire rearing period – right on your smartphone, tablet or PC, thanks to our versatile software!
Forget calf feed buckets: The CalfRail can be installed in new buildings or older ones. We look forward to advising you on installation requirements and will produce a plan tailored to the needs of your farm. Simply give us a call and experience automatic feeding for calves in individual pens!request further information
