Urban U40 automatic
calf feeder has been developed as a top range model for larger farms.
It is the
only model which has a closed loop. Thus suction hoses, mixing bowl and
milk heat exchanger etc can be cleaned entirely automatically.
The closed loop means that milk at the correct temperature is always
for drawing down from the teat. This means that a manual drinking aid
therefore be dispensed with. The U40 injects the liquid medicine
the suction line.
Pressing a button allows milk at the correct temperature (e.g. for
outside boxes) quickly and simply drawn from a milk drain tap. The
can supply two stations with up to 50(2 x 25) calves.
Mixing bowl heating as standard
All Urban mixing bowls have a heating
system, even in their
basic versions. In the U40 top model the mixing bowl and thus also the
milk is kept to the correct temperature by means of a water bath
means the mixing bowl has a constant temperature. Other types of feeder
can cool down between times, which results in the heated water
cooling down a little. If the precise desired temperature is not
of course the powder may not dissolve properly.
steel as standard
All the metal parts
in the Urban computer
controlled calf feeders are made from stainless steel. You’re
always on the
safe side with stainless steel. They are easier to clean and last
is where Urban makes the difference. The stainless steel parts are
important when it comes to the feeding station since these are sited
the excrement and are therefore strongly exposed to corrosion.
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
farmer can immediately see how much milk a calf has not drunk. Other
systems only measure whether the container is full or empty. Further
in the heated mix container stays at the temperature level whilst other
feed the next calf with milk which has cooled down.
All Urban calf
feeders have an automatic
mixing bowl cleaning with alternating acid and alkaline detergent. For
milk operation a stainless steel heat exchanger with a fully automatic
system with detergent (acid/alkaline) are built in as standard.
machine learns to recognise calves
Each calf has its
own individual drinking
speed. Urban automatic calf feeders record and store this
each calf. The alarm is set off only when a particular calf deviates
own drinking speed by a specified amount. This helps to significantly
the number of false alarms.
