The Urban U20's very
compact construction makes it stand out. Its versatility makes it
suitable for medium and for very large farms. The sophisticated design
and high-quality workmanship using stainless steel components provide
the basis for a long service life. With its clear display the Urban U20
is easy to use.
the Urban automatic calf
feeders all the metal parts are made from stainless steel.
You're always on the
safe side with
stainless steel containers. They are easier to clean and last longer.
This is where Urban makes the
difference. The stainless steel parts are specially important when it
the feeding stations since these are sited below in the excrement and
therefore strongly exposed to corrosion.
Simple, maintenance-free and fault-free dosing of the milk
One important feature is the robust
powder bag for the milk
replacer in every Urban calf feeder. This practical solution means that
of agitators can be dispensed with, since the powder always slides
itself. Compared with rigid containers this means that rotating parts
longer needed. The powder bag is simpler to work with, is wear-free and
all works trouble-free.
Mixing bowl heating as standard
Urban mixing bowls are
provided with a heating system - even the basic version. The U20
has electric heating. This means that the mix container always has a
mixing bowl temperature. Other types of feeder systems can cool down
times, which results in the heated water immediately cooling down a
the precise desired temperature is not reached then of course the
not dissolve properly.
Precise measurement of the amount of any remaining milk
All Urban calf feeders measure the
precise amount of
remaining milk which a calf has not drunk. This means the farmer can
immediately see how much milk a calf has not drunk. Other types of
systems only measures whether the container is full or empty. Further
in the heated mixing bowl stays at the same temperature level whilst
types of feeder systems feed the next calf with milk which has cooled
Urban computer controlled
calf feeders have automatic mix container cleaning with an alternating
programme for acid and alkaline detergent. For whole milk operation a
steel heat exchanger and a fully automatic cleaning system
built in as standard.
Simple to use
computer controlled calf
feeders provide many functions which are easy to access and which allow
better control of the calves.
The machine learns to recognise calves
Each calf has its own individual
drinking speed. Urban
computer controlled calf feeders record and store this characteristic
calf. The alarm is set off only when a particular calf deviates from
drinking speed by a specified amount. This helps to significantly
number of false alarms.
