Automatic Feeder

Image ID:

On some veal farms, calves are fed a milk-based diet for their entire lives. Additional energy, vitamines and minerals, including iron, are added to the milk to ensure the calf's diet is nutritionally balanced. This machine automatically mixes the milk and distributes it to the calves. The computer is programmed with the calf's age and weight information so that it knows how much milk each calf is allowed to drink.
