Then read this - on farm comparisons of rearing 120 calves through to weaning on a Förster Technik Vario Smart automatic calf feeder, instead of bucket feeding, found farmers saved 190 hours of working time, carried 87% less weight and reared better calves.

With no surplus help around most farmyards investing in a FörsterTechnik Vario Smart automatic feeder from Volac makes sound business sense.

Especially as farmers find that better quality calves are reared using reliable technology to ensure each calf is fed little and often just as nature intended.
