After ten years at the leading edge of colostrum management in the United States, Golden Calf Company is proud to introduce its new generation of colostrum feeding bags. The Calf Hero™ Colostrum Bags are made in the United States to ensure reliable supply to dairy producers.
“While the pandemic has disrupted major logistical channels, we saw an opportunity to create an American-made product that wouldn’t rely on foreign suppliers. We are proud to have been able to create, through innovation, a competitively priced product made in the United States. A patriotic gesture that will also save money to our customers and ensure reliable deliveries,” said Andy Beckel, owner of Golden Calf Company.
Reiterating its innovation driven focus, Golden Calf Company improved on its previous generation. The new Calf Hero™ Colostrum Bags offer a very large opening and are partially see-through. The designated writing space for colostrum quality, quantity, date of collection, dam ID, as well as feeding time and calf ID makes the Calf Hero™ Colostrum Bag an essential tool for easily implementing and monitoring your colostrum protocols.
Responding to customer needs, the Calf Hero™ Colostrum Bags are available in three color coded sizes, pink for 2L, black for 3L, and blue for 4L.
Thanks to an engineered handle and unique spout, feeding with the new Calf Hero™ Colostrum Bag is convenient. Customers can choose to tube feed or nipple feed directly from the bag, or to combine Golden Calf Company’s unique storage cartridges with a backpack for more ergonomic handling.
“Colostrum feeding is the most important step in our care of a bovine animal, and our goal at Golden Calf Company is to make it as easy and convenient as possible, so that everyone in the maternity area feels comfortable and confident to take care of a newborn immediately.”
