Innovation is what we do
Milk Bar has been the innovator of many commonly used calf rearing products used today.
Of course we are always being followed by the imitators but with our years of practical farming experience, Milk Bar products have the edge.
Teat that Improves Calf Health
In 1992 the Milk Bar Teat changed calf rearing. A bold statement but true!
Rearing calves with no nutritional scours, no cross suckling, reduced use of drugs and heavier calves is now possible thanks to the Milk Bar Teat.
We are very proud of our teat.
It is one of a kind.

We continued to improve the design of mobile calf feeds but in 2000 was the real breakthrough, a mobile with open troughs that you could actually clean!
What makes the Milk Bar mobile super special is the leveller that levels the tank and the manifolds at the same time. Works a treat and makes open manifolds possible.

Enclosed Meal Feeder
2010 was the year that said goodbye to meal wastage for once and for all. The sceptics said it would never work, but it does, brilliantly! The Milk Bar Meal Saver is not only pest proof but water proof. With it's clever counter balanced lids not a scrap of calf meal goes to waste.

Adjustable and Lockable Hooks
Calves are experts at bunting feeders off rails and not all farms have the same size gates and rails. This was causing some problems so the Ezi Lock Hooks were designed to stop bunting, to lock onto any rail or gate and hang upside down for total drainage.
