Bearing retainers of this type, for use in cases of vaginal or uterine prolapse in ewes, have been around for many years. Usually they feature tie strings or tape for securing the retainer to the wool of the ewe. This can be a tedious process. We have developed the 'Protainer'. This tool features locking clips at each end which are clipped onto the wool. Protainer is applied in seconds, is 100% secure, and is easily removed. Pack of 4 pieces. Registered Design NZ 416420.
The EXCAL lamb feeder is well known in New Zealand and Australia. The bottle is lightweight 1-litre capacity. Air inlet is via the small valve mounted in the handle cavity. It can be covered with thumb or finger to slow-up drinking rate, if desired.
The EXCAL Topper is the most versatile lamb and kid feeding device available. Using the proven EXCAL lamb teat in our 'Topper' cap. This nice solid cap incorporates a ball valve to allow inlet of air. The Topper will fit all standard 28mm o.d. thread plastic 'coke' and soda bottles. The EXCAL Topper is a long-lasting teat, that will rear quite a few lambs without breaking up. And lambs love it. If you wish to speed up the flow for stronger lambs, just extend the tip x-cuts slightly.
This single-place lamb feeder is being used in a novel way. Use with cold milk as an ad-lib feeder. The cold milk limits over-feeding, and also keeps longer. In fact, to assist, drop an Esky cold pack, or a small frozen bottle of water in the milk. Remember to cover the feeder with something to keep flies out. The black Excal 'Regular' teat is not recommended for new-borns, but it will last longer with stronger animals feeding ad-lib. Capacity 5 litres. Stainless steel lid available separately.
This four-place feeder uses the EXCAL Little Softy no-leak teats. Total capacity is 4 litres (with splash space to spare) with individual chambers of 750ml each. These feeders join together to make an 8 or 12-place feeder as required. Feeders nest with teats on, for convenient movement and storage. Replaceable rail-hooks secure the feeder to most pipe or wood rails up to 38mm thick. A wall bracket is also available. NB: This feeder is supplied standard with our very soft EXCAL 'Little Softy' (white) teats, suitable for new-born lambs. For feeding older lambs the teats should be changed to more durable EXCAL 'Regular' (black) lamb teats.
Our 10-place lamb and kid feeding rail bucket is a big strong bucket with a 20 litre capacity. The teats are our own EXCAL 'Little Softy', giving easy milk flow but without leaking, even when bucket is full. Rail hooks will suit any rail up to 40mm (1��') thick. (For new born lambs we recommend starting on a bottle for a few days before transferring to the Little Softy teats.) NB: This feeder is supplied standard with our very soft EXCAL 'Little Softy' (white) teats, suitable for new-born lambs. For feeding older lambs or kids the teats should be changed to more durable EXCAL 'Regular' (black) lamb teats.
