DeLaval Lamb and Kid Feeders
Milk substitute is fed ad-lib to the young animals through a sucking teat. Small quantities of the milk are prepared, as required, by the station so that portions are fresh and to a pre-selected temperature. Each unit is able to handle up to 240 young animals or 20-30 per feeding place/teat. This does depend on the model and individual needs of the farm.
The automatic feeder has a compact control unit that is easy to operate with its 7-segment display. Water and milk powder portion size can be configured separately and a portion counter allows the user to monitor volumes of feed being dispensed. Structure your work day as you wish, independent from feeding requirements!
