Calf Feed Barriers

Our calf feed barriers are designed with an adjustable horizontal bar, all gates are height adjustable and have stock proof latching. The adjustability of our gates is ideal for continuous bedding and the growth of calves. The hangers are also height adjustable to suit 80 x 80mm box poles. Poles can be sleeved so that the shed can be used for other purposes during the year. These feed barriers will improve feed rates and increase weight gain as it will give calves individual feed space and there will be less competition for a meal.  The ODEL clip-on feed trough can be attached to these barriers to feed calves and reduce bullying at the trough.

Standard Sizes are 10ft & 12ft and we also make to order.

Adequate feeding and drinking space is very important to the development of your calves. The correct feeder and drinking space must be provided to encourage feed and water intake and to discourage bullying. For bucket feeding, calves require 350mm of feed face each. For automatic feeders, there should always be more than one teat per pen. This reduces the risk of calves being without milk and then overfeeding when a teat is fixed. Meal troughs should be around 450mm above the floor.

Clip-on troughs

The stock lengths of this style are available in lengths of; .85m, 1.25m 1.94m and 2.5m.

“Good facilities allow farmers to expand production and incomes and add to the asset value of the farm. They also lead to a better quality of life for the farm family by reducing the workload and the drudgery. In many cases, particularly on dairy farms, buildings pay for themselves over a 7-10 year period. This is especially true when capital grant and tax savings are available.”
