Sensor technology for calves and youngstock

Video description: 

Ronnie Schellekens, a dairy farmer from Goirle Holland, talks about how the DeLaval automatic calf feeder has given him more time to look after his calves as he no longer has to spend time feeding them. Chris Britton demonstrates how the MooCall calving sensor has reduced calf mortality on their Yorkshire dairy farm, and how the technology has helped them to get colostrum in the calves at the right time. Finally, Jef Aernouts, an advisor from Wim Govaerts and Co. discusses how automatic goat feeders are utilised.
