Feeding Calves Milk Shuttle
From Milk Shuttle
Feeding calves is heavy physical work, and moving 100 kg or more sev-eral times a day is not an infrequent occurrence. Coping with inclines, rough terrain, or ice and snow during the winter is especially difficult. So it‘s a good thing that Urban has a MilkShuttle for this. The electrically powered MilkShuttle lets you transport milk conveniently without effort, making even long distances to the calves‘ pen a snap.
- Four practical sizes
- Highest material and production quality
- Exact mixing temperature
- Well thought-out details
- Exact dosing
- Strong electric drive
Finish up more quickly –
More time for other things
“Time is short!”- Who hasn‘t experienced this in their daily work? The MilkShuttle lets you save valuable working time, as the following example shows (expended time for feeding 30 calves with the Urban MilkShuttle in comparison with bucket feeding):
- Feeding 30 calves by bucket: 25 minutes
- Feeding 30 calves with the MilkShuttle: only 11 minutes
Feed easily –
Without force and strain
“This will make your back happy!” The effort you must make while feeding is drastically reduced by the electric drive of the MilkShuttle. The drive and large tyres help you reach your calves effortless through snow and slush as well as overcome inclines.
The long wheel base and the low centre of gravity lets you move the MilkShuttle even in rough terrain without danger of tipping over. Since the MilkShuttle has a three-wheel design, it is very manoeuverable and has excellent traction - even when the ground is slushy and when travelling over ice and snow.
Two-stage agitator for fresh milk or calf milk replacer (CMR) (700 or 1400 rpm, 0.37 kW). When using milk replacer, the high-speed agitator ensures the milk powder is mixed quickly and without clumps. When using whole milk, the fresh milk to be fed is treated gently by the slow speed of the agitator. There are no sealing problems because the motor is installed at the top.
The integrated heater ensures the feed has the optimal temperature. An interval timer for the agitator prevents the milk from burning.
The control panel has a straightforward arrangement and is extremely easy to use.It provides a quick overview of all important data, such as the set-point and actual temperature of the milk, the operating times for the stirring intervals or the charge condition of the battery.
The ergonomic, height-adjustable handle of the drawbar head has two separate speed and direction controllers arranged to the right and left. This lets the operator walk on the left or right of the MilkShuttle while dosing out. A manual brake is not necessary because the Shuttle simply remains standing even on steep slopes when the controller is released. The feed portion can be dosed out by the lever of the pump nozzle, or also expeditiously by using the switch at the drawbar head.
Lockable lid with seal which prevents the milk from spilling over. In the container, the indestructible quantity scale serves to reliably read the liquid quantity.
Ergonomically shaped pump nozzle for issuing feed. A quantity can be either pre-selected or tapped in the manner of a petrol pump.
