By now you know all about our new snap-in tube feeder, our reusable plastic tube feeder, our stainless steel tube feeder, and our nipple feeder. Now you may be thinking about how to use it all. Let’s review your options:
Our New Snap-In Tube Feeder-you directly insert the tube feeder into the spout of the bag. This is the most hygienic option as it is a single-use system. Each calf gets its own tube feeder and bag at every feeding. No more worries about your cleaning procedures being compromised.
Our Reusable Plastic Tube Feeder– You can attach this tube feeder to either a short or long hose to feed the calf. This tube feeder can be reusable, although it is not recommended. If you are reusing it, you must clean and sanitize it after every use and toss if it has scratches or other damage to prevent injury to your next calf.
Our Stainless Steel Tube Feeder-Again, you will need to attach the feeder to a hose on the bag. This tube feeder is a durable and reusable option. You will need to clean and sanitize after each feeding. You also should have multiple tube feeders so that way you can have designated ones for colostrum and ones for electrolytes. It is not wise to use the same tube feeder for the colostrum and electrolytes even with a proper sanitization procedure.
Our Nipple Feeder– This is a great option for calves that do not require tube feeding or those second and third feedings of colostrum. You will attach a hose to the bag and then the nipple feeder and nipple on the hose to feed the calf.
Our Backpack– Take the stress out of your employees by having our ergonomic backpack available for them to use as a hands-free way to feed the calves.
No matter, what your choice is, we are here for you. We are listening to your feedback as we continue to innovate new ways to take care of your calves.
