Over the years, the practice of feeding calves through an automatic feeding system has been explored. Even though the conventional way of feeding milk or milk replacer to calves individually 2 or 3 times daily has been proven to result in healthy and profitable calves, some farmers are considering ways to reduce time spent feeding calves. Most automatic calf feeders are programmed to use accelerated calf feeding programs where more total volume of milk is fed per day but in smaller more frequent meals, similar to how a calf nurses its dam. This automatic system identifies a calf through an ear tag or a neck collar and dispenses an amount of milk based on how the system has been programmed, such as based on age, body weight, etc. When managed properly, this feeding system provides for excellent growth of the calf.
