Helmut Urban

Founder of the company

From farmers – for farmers:

Helmut Urban already dealt with the challenges of calf rearing while working on his parents’ farm.

Thanks to his many years of experience, he knew exactly what was import- ant. This knowledge led to the development of an automatic calf feeder. Little by little this idea led to the own production and the distribution of URBAN.

Since 1984:

The company URBAN was founded by Helmut Urban on his farm in Wüsting in 1984.

Soon the demand for UR- BAN products was high enough for the company to move to a new location in the enterprise zone of Wüsting in 1992. In recent years, URBAN has been able to further expand its outstand- ing position as a specialist in feeding technology for calves. With the Alma Pro calf feeder and the MilkShuttle, URBAN has two extremely sophisti- cated product lines for both stationary and mobile feeding of young animals.

The URBAN family farm:

Over the years, a small dairy farm developed into an innovative, internationally active, medium-sized company.
