Milk Bar ™ 1 3L with Lid

Product Code: 910100

Incredibly robust and durable, the Milk Bar™ 1 will last many years of hard work.
The hooks fit a 25mm rail and the feeder has a self-locking catch to secure it to a rail.
A nicely positioned teat channel is comfortable for the calf and ensures the feeder completely drains.
Finger grips make this feeder easy to carry and it comes with a lid to stop flies.
Fitted with a Milk Bar™ Teat to improve calf digestion.

You can hang the Milk Bar™ 1 on rails or pipes up to 25mm wide. Make sure you don’t force the feeder onto a wider rail as it can result in cracking the base of the hook.
To give your calves the best drinking position, hang the Milk Bar™ 1 on a rail around 80cm high. This puts the teat at 60cm which is the optimum height for calves and helps the oesophageal groove to close. 

How do I change my teats?

Milk Bar™ Teats have a pull through design to sit snugly against the feeder wall for optimum hygiene. However, while this is the most hygienic system, it can also be difficult to change teats!

Use a Teat Tool: This is by far the easiest method. The purpose designed Teat Tool plucks the teat from the feeder with minimal effort in seconds.
Pull the teats out by hand: When removing by hand, make sure to either pull the teat directly down or up. If you try to pull the teat straight out, it will be a tough job!
Cut the teats out: Make sure the blade is sharp and you use the knife away from you.
Be sure to check the teat alignment is correct and the slit is vertical!

Milk is a difficult substance to clean off of surfaces. You need hot water to remove the fat, but the heat can bake the protein onto the surface. Using warm water to get rid of the protein leaves a film of fat. When fats and proteins stick to the surface of equipment, they form a biofilm, a nutrient-rich layer in which bacteria grow.
The biofilm protects bacteria from the cleaning process and results in equipment that appears clean but has bacteria on the surface. The cleaning process not only needs to remove fat and protein from surfaces but prevent the formation of a biofilm.
All Milk Bar Teats are made from a natural rubber. Natural rubber absorbs the milk fat and protein which causes the teats to become softer.
Using an Alkali Detergent a few times a week with strip the milk fat and protein from the rubber so your calves can enjoy the controlled flow for longer.

  1. Rinse your feeder with water.
  2. Use an alkali detergent, following the manufacturers instructions.
  3. Using a brush to lightly scrub the feeder and outside of the teats making sure to bend the teats over.
  4. Rinse clean.
