Inspect your esophageal feeder tube for scratches on a regular basis. “You want it to be glass smooth the whole way down,” says Jud Heinrichs, professor of dairy science at Penn State University. If you scratch it — by dropping it on the ground, for instance — the rough edge can damage the lining of the calf’s esophagus. Replace worn or damaged esophageal feeders promptly.
