Calf Self Feeder

The calf self feeder bucket allows a worker with back and arm impairments to feed calves without bending down and holding bottles.

Description

The calf self feeder bucket allows a worker with back and arm impairments to feed calves without bending down and holding bottles. Young calves are fed 2-quart bottles of milk at least twice per day.  Bending over holding the bottle is a particular challenge for workers with back or neck disabilities as a calf may take several minutes to finish drinking, all the while bumping and pushing against the bottle. The calf self feeder hangs on a fence so feeding milk can be done without bending and holding calf bottles.

 

Workers with common conditions such as these would benefit from a calf self feeder: Arm Amputation, Back Pain, Balance / Core Stability, Diabetes/Diabetic Neuropathy, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Hand Injury, Herniated Disc, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Neck Injury, Old-Age, Scoliosis-Kyphosis-Lordosis, Spinal Cord Injury, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Heavy galvanized, 16-gauge steel bracket is contoured to mount easily on a 2″ x 4″ rail.

Rivets are aluminum; handle and eyelets are double galvanized steel to keep rust at bay.

Bucket is constructed of Fortalloy rubber-polyethylene alloy for better cold weather cracking resistance.

8 qt.

10″ dia. x 8″ high.
