Natural Drinking Approach
The teat at the feeding station is positioned so that it slants downwards. This encourages the natural drinking position of the calf
When the head is stretched this encourages the natural reflex of the esophageal groove and reduces the risk of milk passing into the rumen.
LED lit teat
Practice has shown that the calves can orientate better when the teat is illuminated. This increases the intake of milk during the night. During the day it is more calm because the feeding process is evenly distributed over 24 hours.
Calves Teach Themselves
As soon as a calf lifts the teat, a small amount of milk flows into it's mouth. This stimulates the calf's initial drinking impulse; manual learning is only necessary in exceptional cases.
