Milk Bar™ 20

Product Code: 910800

The Milk Bar™ 20 has a solid base so calves cannot knock it over, even when they are close to weaning.
A fairly large feeder, the feeder bowl stacks inside the base when not in use to reduce storage space.
There are loads of creative ways to fill the Milk Bar™ 20, but typically a hose is the easiest to avoid carrying buckets through boisterous calves.
Being perfectly round, you can feed 20 calves right through to weaning, either inside or out.
Fitted with Milk Bar™ Teats to improve average daily gains.
Now with an optional extra lid!

The Milk Bar™ 20 comes with the feeder bowl stacked inside the base and a pack of the bolts and instructions you will need to assemble the feeder ready for use.

1. Place the feeder bowl upside down on the ground.
2. Place the base on to the feeder bowl, lining up the bolt holes.
3. Screw the bolts into place. They are wingnut so no need for any tools.
4. Fill with milk and leave them to it!

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.

Made from renewable, high quality natural rubber, Milk Bar™ Teats are kinder to the environment. Natural rubber absorbs the milk fat and protein which can cause the teats to become softer and start to drip. The milk flow can become faster, decreasing calf performance.

Recommended cleaning: Use Milk Bar™ Detergent, a dishwashing detergent, or any other non-chlorine/ chloride dairy detergent twice a week. Important! Chlorine/chloride based dairy detergents degrade natural rubber which reduces teat performance and voids any warranty.

  1. Rinse your teats with water.
  2. Use a gentle detergent, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Do not use Chlorine/chloride based dairy detergents!
  3. Using a brush, lightly scrub the outside of the teats making sure to bend the teats. By bending the teats, any milk gets pushed back inside the feeder so the detergent can make contact with the inside of the teat wall.
  4. Rinse clean.
