Designed for fast, efficient group feeding of calves whilst maintaining an individual approach and promoting improved digestion of milk. Existing Ad Lib feeding systems have high establishment costs, are labour intensive and extravagant with milk. The Wydale System: Group calves of 3, 5, 6, 8 or 10 to a pen. Feeder(s) hang on the calf pen gate in such a way that the teats are level with the calves’ backs. One person using two 5 Teat feeders can feed over 70 calves an hour. The cowling guides the calf to the teat and protects it from its neighbour ensuring slow drinkers get enough milk. .
The wydale system is not only fast and efficient it also remains the best for animal welfare. The troughs have compartments each holding 2 litres (3 1/2 pints) to the ridge along the back or 3 litres (5 1/4 pints) to the top of the weirs. You only need to fill up as many compartments as you have calves per pen. One sick calf can be given medicated milk/electrolytes if necessary and the rest plain milk.
