In fullfilling Golden Calf Company’s mission “to provide dairy producers with innovative products for calf care”, our goal is to supply dairy farms the right tools to achieve a consistently healthy calf population.
Golden Calf Company launched at the 2010 World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin with its first colostrum management system called the ColoQuick.
In 2012, the World Ag Expo Committee recognized our newest product at that time the MAXX 4 colostrum pasteurizer with a Top 10 Products of the Year Honorable Mention.
In 2013 we delivered dairy producers the ultimate tool to help them measure their success of newborn calf rearing, the digital dip style refractometer. Producers thus have a way of creating benchmarks for their calf raising protocols and seeing how they improve over time.
As we pursued the most efficient colostrum management system in 2014 we added a commercial grade Colostrum Freezer Bank with a glass door, that at a single glance allows the producer to know what quality colostrum is available to the newborns and facilitates better management of colostrum quality.
Listening to our customer needs has us developing and adding products to our offering, as these continue to grow, our branding must evolve. In 2015 we added three product lines. Calf Wear represents high-quality calf jackets made right here in Wisconsin. Calf Lab focuses on hygiene and testing of protocols, while Calf Gear offers products that aid in everyday feedings.
For our efforts of maintaining production locally, we were recognized in 2016 by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation as one of the pilot companies to use the exclusive “Made in Wisconsin” label, which we are very proud of.
The technology is moving forward by leaps and bounds and so are our products. The first Smart colostrum pasteurizer, called the Calf Hero™ 12 , was introduced in 2017. This twelve capacity unit serves some of the largest dairies in the country. Built right here in Wisconsin, it is designed to withstand the highest demands. It features internet connectivity, the ability to send text message alerts, self diagnose and most importantly, thaw and pasteurize colostrum precisely.
After the successful launch of Calf Hero™ 12, we have received such wonderful feedback and customers demanding the same level of technology for growing dairies, and so at the very end of the year, we introduced the Calf Hero™ 6 for the very first time.
We continue to develop our Calf Hero™ colostrum pasteurizer line and bring you new innovation. This year, you can look forward to interacting with the Calf Hero™ in multiple languages, run pre-scheduled cleaning cycles as well as place your supplies orders directly from the machine.
A true HERO in every sense.
As the industry moves closer toward automation, precision technologies, and lean practices, we want to stay on top of the innovation curve, so stay tuned for new products.
