Our solutions for calves feeding


Why is hygien important when feeding calves?

The first weeks after the birth of a calf have a strong influence on the further development and productivity of a dairy cow. Feeding from clean bottles or buckets are essential for feeding calves. The immune system of calves that have ingested colostrum does not start until the calf is 4 till 7 weeks old. Until then, but certainly afterwards, hygiene is a priority when feeding the calves. In the first week a calf is vulnerable and prone to health problems. By ensuring the hygiene of the bottles or buckets, many common diseases can be prevented.

Calves need antibodies to protect themselves. A calf can’t produce these antibodies itself in the first week of life, which is why calves completely dependent on the antibodies that are in colostrum. The most common cause of bacterial contamination is that the materials are not clean. That is why the Bottle Washer is a good addition to the farm to ensure hygiene and to raise healthy calves.
