Why the hiko nipple bucket?
Nutrition is essential for the growth development of your calves. Along the way we still see young cattle with digestive problems, like diarrhea. Calves develop an abomasum where milk is being digested. However, does the milk end up in the rumen, so-called rumen drinking, then milk will start to rot. When a calf drinkt too fast or too much, the odds that milk ends up in the rumen is high. Hereby, the calf feeder offers several benefits:
- Individual nutrition
- Better digestion thanks to slower milk flow
- Calfs learn via an easy way to drink
- Reduces the possibility of rumen drinking
- Optimal spit production
In order to optimize the nutrition of your calves, Topcalf offers Hiko calf feeders. The advantage of these calf feeders is that, besides the ones mentioned above, they are easy to clean and install. Furthermore, they are transparant which allows you to see exactly how much each calf drinks.
Hiko drinking bucket winner of the test
In the spring of 2020 the German magazine, TopAgrar, has conducted a large research to the performance of a number of nipple buckets. All these buckets were assessed based on work convenience, easy of drinking and readability of scales. Unanimously, the Hiko nipple buckets were chosen as the best of the test. Especially the ease of how the 1-Click drinking bucket can be (de) installed gave the decisive vote.
