CalfRail – Deployed by the Agrar-Genossenschaft EG Zodel

"After 25 years it was time to replace the calf feeder line. Previously the Igloo calves had been bucket-fed with whole milk three times a day. Changing the feeding regime over to powder and introducing the new device eliminated a lot of manual work. The best thing though is that the calves now get milk of even temperature in the winter. The 40FIT program enables us to raise calves applying the latest scientific insights. Changing the supplemental feed ration increased daily gain significantly in the raising period up to 100 days."
