The Wydale System:.
Feeder(s) hang on the calf pen gate in such a way that the teats are level with the calves’ backs. Pour in the milk and make sure each calf is sucking.
Mix more milk and move the feeder(s) to the next pen.
Using this system a typical calf can be weaned on as little as 15 kgs of milk powder as opposed to 50 kgs on the Ad Lib method.
The cowling guides the calf to the teat and protects it from its neighbour ensuring slow drinkers get enough milk.
In addition, calves’ herded in groups encourages earlier intake of solid food,whilst exercise helps digestion and gives freedom to find a draught free position. Calves are generally happier.
The Wydale system is not only fast and efficient it also remains the best for animal welfare.
The troughs have markings for 2, 3 and 4 Litres.
