Calf Rearing: Saving time and energy pays off

10
10%

About 10 % of all the work on a dairy farm is dedicated to the calves. A big part of it spent for mixing and feeding of the milk as well as cleaning of the buckets and/or hutches/pens.

25%

The costs of calf rearing in the first three months account for about one quarter of the whole cost of rearing a heifer, which is approx. 1.500 Euro.

73 tons milk per year

With 200 l milk per day, you carry approx. 73 tons of milk per year. This quantity of milk fits into a Gigaliner!

That’s why: Urban Alma Pro is the way to go

With the Urban Alma Pro, you can customize the amount of work in calf rearing economically, without sacrificing the animal welfare.

Cleaning buckets, mixing portions and transporting milk are tasks that can be saved with the use of an automatic feeder.

Flexibility – independent of feeding times

  • Healthy calves = less calf losses = less costs = more profit
  • Easy use and data retrieval via touchscreen, smartphone or PC
  • Successful Farming: The Urban Alma Pro is an investment, which pays off

Calf health at a glance



The Urban Alma Pro knows the individual daily requirement of your calves: Every calf gets exactly the individual entitled amount of milk. You can see how often the animal drank and which quantities did it consume. All relevant data are registered and can be retrieved any time. It also measures the exact remaining milk, if the calf did not drink its total portion. If a calf does not drink enough, the calf feeder Urban Alma Pro will trigger an alarm immediately. That way you can react quickly.

Start screen with One Touch Overview-button

With this button you can obtain right away the list of all animals "to be observed".

Complete Herd Overview

Quick overview of fitness and feeding condition of the animals as well as their location. The grading system is visually supported by colours.

The food intake is monitored continuously and accurately

Measurement and control of the consumed amount of milk as well the remaining milk – on the milliliter

Documentation of the drinking behaviour (number of visits of the drinking station, duration of the visit and drinking speed)

User-friendly: Feeding via touchscreen

Unique monitoring and convenient setting and adjustment of feeding curves allow you to feed the animals appropriate to their individual needs and to make calf rearing more efficient and profitable.

Establish contact easily!

Operation and data retrieval via the integrated touchscreen is very easy. Other remote control options via PC, smartphone or tablet make the Urban Alma Pro even more comfortable.

  • Feed Overview

    This monitoring is unique among today's feeding systems. The evaluation system provides you at all times with a quick overview, if the calf drank sufficiently or if it needs support. The overview graphically presents the daily amounts consumed, the feed consumed in the last seven days as well as the drinking behaviour: how much and how fast the animal drank.

  • Create as many feeding curves as you like and adjust them simply with the touch function:

    • Daily amount of milk
    • Size of the portion and distribution of portions
    • Feeding days
    • Weaning
    • Alarm system
    • Feed concentration
  • Remaining milk quantity measurement

    Remaining milk quantity measurement and mixing bowl heater as standard: The CalfMom measures the exact quantity of remaining milk which a calf did not drink. Conventional systems only measure a full or empty filling condition. In addition, the milk in the heated mixing bowl is maintained at a constant temperature level, whereas the systems of other manufacturers will serve cooled down milk to the next calf.

Full functionality and alarm function with iPhone, iPad, Android- and Windows- smartphone as well as via PC

With the smart device or PC you can use all the functions of the Urban Alma Pro – from monitoring until adjusting the feeding curves. Thanks to the alarm system you can recognise a suspect calf, even when you are not in the barn (only in European countries available) (*2,4 GHz Wifi (WLAN)).
