Deluxe Calf Hutch

Deluxe Calf Hutches (EXL and SL models) feature a patent
pending three-in-one rear door, which swings out of the way, can remain open,
provides easy access to feed with an ATV or truck, allows feed to stay out of
the elements, is easy to operate because it has no latches and snaps shut, and
has a sliding grill vent. It’s also the only manger with Splash Guard and Pail
Stoppers, which prevent feed from getting wet and liquids from becoming
contaminated. Visit www.agri-plastics.net to learn more.

Milk Taxi

Carrying heavy buckets to feed calves just became a thing of
the past thanks to the Milk Taxi. This mobile calf feeder allows you to preset
feeding parameters for calves. Once programmed, all you do is feed calves.
Because feed quantities are preset and the temperature is constantly monitored,
the risk of feeding mistakes is reduced. Whether you want the floor-mounted
agitator to dissolve milk powder or you want to adjust the dosage quantities,
all functions can be programmed at the control panel with the press of a
button. You can also preset start times for specific processes, such as pasteurization
or heating. Suggested price for a 75-gallon unit is $10,200. For more
information, visit www.calfstar.com.
