Johnny Kleinsasser from Redfield, S.D., has developed a handy tool for mixing milk replacer for calves. Supplies needed include a 7-inch diameter piece of stainless steel, a 2-foot piece of metal pipe, and a drill and welder. He drilled several holes into the stainless steel (see photo) and then welded it to one end of the pipe. The holes allow fluid to flow through as the tool is pushed up and down in a pail of milk replacer. Mixing is now quick and easy.
