Volac launches new simplified computerised calf feeding system

A new computerised calf feeding system designed to help farmers improve animal performance, and make labour savings together with subsequent costs, has been launched by Volac International.

Volac Urban U30

Called the Volac Urban U30, the system can rear up to 50 calves at any one time using whole milk or milk replacer, while the feeding of each individually identified calf can be completely controlled by pre determined feeding curves.  

“While more than 60% of dairy heifer replacements are reared on computerised calf feeding systems in Germany, an increasing number are realising the benefits in the UK, particularly when it comes to saving time and exploiting each individual calf’s full potential in a welfare friendly environments,” says Volac International’s Howard Gilbert. “The Volac Urban U30 is the latest addition to our portfolio of computerised calf feeders and is designed as a cost effective option for those farmers looking for a simplified and basic set up.”

The Volac Urban U30 will be launched at the Royal Welsh Show. For further information contact Volac International on Freephone 0800 919808.
