Keep calf equipment dry

 Resize text         Printer-friendly version of this article Printer-friendly version of this article

Calf feeding equipment can harbor pathogens when not kept dry. That’s why Stephen Hayes, veterinarian and technical service manager for Milk Products Inc., in Chilton, Wis., recommends that producers and calf raisers purchase shelving to store buckets, bottles and nipples. Purchased at a hardware store for around $1.50 to $2.50 per foot, shelves can be mounted to the wall, allowing equipment to dry after cleaning.

Hayes recommends that buckets be stacked in a pyramid until completely dried, and that nipples and bottles be placed upright on the shelves.
