automatic calf feeding
Our products for automatic feeding are exceptionally efficient, saving you time, and ensuring the right feed at the right moment.
Grow your herd with MilkShuttles
Three wheels for ANY terrain
Feeding calves is heavy physical work, and moving 100 kg or more several times a day is not an infrequent occurrence. Coping with inclines, rough terrain, or ice and snow during the winter is especially difficult.
The Urban MilkShuttle has been specifically designed with a view towards such daily challenges:
➜ 3 wheels for optimum mobility and all-terrain capability – especially for steps, rough terrain and during the winter
➜ No sudden setting in motion: Automatic stop for secure park position even on hills
➜ Available with and without drive
➜ Extremely small turning circle
➜ Well thought-out functions
➜ Practical accessories
due to high demand, the milkshuttle now comes in four sizes!
*Please note: The MilkShuttle 100 can not be ordered in a pasteurizing model. Models 150, 200, & 250 can be purchased as a MilkShuttle (only) or a MilkShuttle Pasteurizer (with the ability to pasteurize milk).
The three-wheel design of the MilkShuttle makes it very manoeuvrable while providing excellent traction.
Grow your herd with MilkShuttle Pasteurizers
The MilkShuttle with pasteurization function
During pasteurization, the heating of the milk reliably kills off germs and bacteria. The milks is more digestible for your calves, and problems with diarrhoea are avoided.
Pasteurizing is not equal to pasteurizing!
With the Urban MilkShuttle Pasteur you have a powerful heater (6kW) and an efficient cooling. The slowly rotating agitator ensures continuous and complete circulation of the entire container content. It also prevents the milk from foaming, which can be a reason for incomplete pasteurization.
For the Urban MilkShuttle Pasteur, the heating/ cooling unit is in the housing floor below the milk. Even smallest amounts of milk can be cooled quickly and efficiently without losing thermal energy via the outer wall of the container.
Quick release to connect the MilkShuttle Pasteur with the cooling water supply and drain.
