- Bucket Feeding System



In 2005, Holm & Laue revolutionised bucket feeding with the invention of the Milk Taxi. Since then, carrying buckets has been a thing of the past, and every calf receives an optimally stirred mixture at the right temperature. Today, useful extras such as the electric drive, the remote-controlled dosing pump, the option to pasteurise and cool, hot water heating and the drenching probe for cows make the Milk Taxi an indispensable tool on modern dairy farms.

The newest generation, the Milk Taxi 4.0, is revolutionising bucket feeding once again.

The Milk Taxi now also enables reliable feeding and weaning based on age, which before was only possible with automatic feeders. It recognises every hutch and calculates the actual correct milk quantity for the calf! The Milk Taxi also knows the amount of milk required for the next feeding, and during the preparation, it already gradually produces the correct mixture, including fortifying whole milk. Mistakes and carelessness are no longer an issue. And the highlight: All of the feeding data can be permanently stored and accessed via tablet or PC at any time. As a result, errors in the feeding process can be localised and rectified immediately.
