We are a family-owned company in Western Wisconsin. In fulfilling 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 with American made products.
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. We chose to source our calf jackets locally in Wisconsin because it gives back to the dairy farming community.
The technology is moving forward by leaps and bounds and so are our products. The first Smart Calf Hero™ 12 colostrum pasteurizer 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. With internet connectivity, it sends text message alerts and ability to self-diagnose.
After the successful launch of Calf Hero™ 12 colostrum pasteurizer, 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 colostrum pasteurizer for the very first time. Designed and built right here in America’s Dairyland, it is the ideal colostrum pasteurizer for growing dairies.
Continually improving the Calf Hero™ colostrum pasteurizer line 2019 brought you new innovation.
Both, the Calf Hero™6 colostrum pasteurized and Calf Hero™12 colostrum pasteurized communicate in multiple languages (English and Spanish are standard, additional options are available upon request). New features include pre-scheduled cleaning cycles and the ability to place orders for your supplies directly from the machine.
A true HERO in every sense.
New year – new colostrum management technology! The Calf Hero™ colostrum pasteurizer line is now enabled for the “Hero Viewer” remote access giving you an easy connection from your phone, tablet, or desktop directly to the colostrum pasteurizer. A simple way to view the log of your pasteurizing cycles and keep an eye on the happenings in the maternity area. Get your 2020 vision with the Calf Hero™ Colostrum pasteurizers.
As the world stood still during the pandemic, we hunkered down and spent all our time developing new products. We searched and researched; we tried and we failed; we learned and we succeeded. In 2021, we are proud to expand our Calf Hero™ product line with all-American products targeted at large American dairies. Welcome the new Colostrum Bags in three sizes for convenient feeding, with a large opening, lots of writing space, and a handle for easy feeding.
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 calf products and innovation for dairy maternity areas. We have lots of ideas but we know that the real innovation comes from the field, so let us know what you are thinking. Where do you need help? What can be improved? We are ready to listen.
