AD LIB Feeder

Our long-standing experience in the area of Automatic Calf Feeding has enabled us to develop a state-of-the-art feeding system also for lamb and kid applications.

The H&L Ad Lib Feeder allows feeding milk replacer to up to 150 lambs or kids automatically with a maximum of six feeding extensions. Milk replacer is prepared by the adequate quantity as required.

The heated mixer bowl ensures that the lamb or kid will find a fresh ration of milk with the proper temperature available at any time.

This is how you'll find much more spare time, in particular during lamb season, and benefit from controlled and consistent feeding for healthier lambs and kids that developed better.


The powerful standard version

The Standard model version offers all the advantages of the H&L feeders. The ad libitum Feeder features a heated mixer bowl, to make sure the ration is always fully in line with the lambs' or kids' requirements. Its 50 kg milk replacer tank gives you all the flexibility for managing workload that you need. It ships with a protective anti-fly shield. Der H&L Ad lib is designed for feeding 150 lambs or kids with six feeding extensions.

Four to six lamb feeding extensions

Two further feeding extensions are available as an option.

Optional liquid doser

This extra allows adding, e.g., formic acid to control coliforms or liquid drugs to the milk replacer diet.

Optional powder doser

Adding a dosing device for powdered additives to the H&L Ad lib gives you the opportunity to administer drugs or other feed additives as powders to your lambs or kids.

Automatic cleaning

When you opt for this extra, you set the feeder in state to clean itself automatically once or twice a day.

The H&L Ad lib Feeder is a "simple" solution developed from everyday practice, for automatic milk feeding to young animals, which features a number of clear advantages over other solutions available on the market:
