Moving Floor
Calf Feeder

The Calf Feeder by Moving Floor is by far the easiest modular system that can automate calf feeding even to small groups of calves. 

The milk is mixed in a plastic bag with compressed air. 

Every other day, the old bag is replaced with a new bag. 

RFID indicates how much milk or concentrate feed that the calf should have. Simple and ingenious.

Here's how it works: Concentrate

1. The calf carry an ear tag with RFID. The ear tag is read and will grant/not grant the calf permission to eat concentrate.
2. The calf is given a small amount of concentrate feed that the calf easily finishes. A sound indication will teach the calf the correlation between putting her head by the feed tray and getting feed. A programmed feed curve indicates the calf maximum intake per day.

Here's how it works: Milk

1. The calf carry an ear tag with RFID. The ear tag is read and will grant/not grant the calf permission to eat milk.
2. The plastic bag will fill up with milk powder and water.
3. Compressed air is led down through the channels of the bag. The milk is mixed as the air bubbles up. The programmed feeding curve decides the amount and timing of milk to be given to the calf.
