Allows you to feed up to 5 calves
in a group, knowing that all calves are receiving their share
with no cross sucking after feeding. Winner of the designer
performance application award at the 1991 New Zealand National
The Milk Bar 5 is good for
your calves as it brings all the natural suckling advantages
of the Milk Bar Teat, and it is good
for you as it brings you the benefits listed below.
Easy teaching of new calves.
The suckling action required to feed from a Milk Bar Teat is the
same as feeding from a cow, so most calves will teach themselves
Easy to use. The unique
solid moulded handle makes it a one handed operation to carry
the Milk Bar 5, whether full or empty, and push the hooks over
the rail for a snug fit.
You need less space for
feeding. The semi-circular design means the Milk Bar 5 is
smaller and lighter for the same volume, and it is the ideal
shape for calves to feed.
You don't have to get in the
pen with your calves. The Milk Bar 5 hooks on the rail, so
you stay outside the pen.
Allows you to easily move from
pen to pen. When feeding groups of up to 5 calves it is very
simple to lift the Milk Bar 5 from the rail of 1 pen and move it
to the next group of calves.
Saves you $$. As the Milk
Bar 5 is so portable, you don't need a feeder for each pen. 1
Milk Bar 5 for each 3 or 4 pens is a good indication of the
number required for efficient feeding.
Saves you time. One person
can feed 100 calves in 30 minutes with 5 Milk Bar 5's, and still
have time to check the calves, give them fresh pellets, and
check their water troughs.
Easy cleaning. The Milk
Bar 5 is washed like a bucket, and the teats "milked" to clean
them. We recommend using warm water and an alkali dairy
detergent. Milk bar Teats do not need to be removed from the
feeder for cleaning.

The ideal rail height for the
Milk Bar 5 is 90cm (3 ft) above the ground. This gets the teats
60cm (2 ft) above the ground, which our trials have shown is the
ideal teat height as it is close to the natural feeding height
