Giving calves a better start

FEEDING newborn calves could be made easier with the launch of a stomach tube for use with the "Betterstart" feeding bottle from Cox surgical.

The Betterstart bottle teat can be replaced with the stomach tube, allowing cows colostrum to be fed to calves in the six hours immediately after calving.

The stomach tube costs £6.18, the bottle and teat £5.70.
