The dilemma of whole milk storage

Whole milk feeding is becoming increasingly important in calf rearing. However, there are a few technical obstacles to be overcome for feeding at the calf feeder. There has to be a constant supply of milk in the storage tank, for example, because the calves come to feed all day long. But if the calves feed more than usual, the tank is empty too quickly and the animals do not get any milk for a certain time.

On the other hand, there is often some milk still left in the tank when it is to be filled and cleaned. This is often simply thrown away. Since this is expensive, however, the fresh milk is often just added to the old milk in the tank and feeding continues without the storage tank being cleaned properly.

In addition, conventional milk tanks start to freeze over when the level in the tank is very low, which is a problem. It damages the milk and puts a strain on the technology. For this reason, we have developed the ultimate solution for you for the storage of whole milk for calf feeders like the CalfExpert. Learn how the DoubleJug solves all of the above problems here.

Feed whole milk for 24 hours – and refill when it suits you
The CalfExpert calf feeder draws its milk from one of the tanks. Should this tank become empty, the DoubleJug switches automatically to the second tank and the CalfExpert can continue to feed without interruption. This means no waiting times and no interruptions in feeding, thus making optimum use of the CalfExpert’s high performance.

Once a tank has been cleaned, DoubleJug is ready for filling. Usually both tanks are filled to take advantage of the maximum capacity of the DoubleJug. The advantage of the two-chamber system is that the DoubleJug can be filled at any time without having to wait for the exact moment the milk tank is empty. There are neither residual quantity nor times during which the CalfExpert stops feeding due to lack of milk.
