CalfProtect is an extension for feeding stations that prevents calves from sucking their neighbor after feed intake. At the same time CalfProtect safeguards the calves in the feeding station against sucking calves.
The grating gate automatically closes via pneumatic cylinder as soon as a calf with feed entitlement enters the station. Beforehand, the calf can easily see the teat and has unhindered access to the station. Therefore, the visit remains stress-free also for young calves. CalfProtect can be easily retrofitted and is compatible with the standard drinking stations.
