Calan Feed Bins

The feed containment systems you choose for your research facility is an important decision.  You need to consider the types of testing you want to conduct today and in the future.  Key things to consider when making this decision are the animal’s size, environmental conditions, feed ration capacity and overall operational efficiency within your facility.

 

Calan offers 2 primary feed containment systems (bins) designed for your research needs, our Modular Feed Mangers and our Mobile Feed Tubs.  These systems have been specifically designed based upon years of experience and thousands of installations around the world.

MODULAR FEED MANAGER

The Calan Modular Feed Managers represent an alternative to our prior feed bin the EZ-Tilt Tubs.  The Modular Feed Manger offer key features that make it desirable for research facilities:

Custom designed to your specific requirements

The Calan Feed Mangers are completely customizable to your facility, the animals you are feeding and the types of tests you will be conducting. Our expert design team will review your requirements and design and install the system specific to your needs.

Open Front

Provides ideal visibility while the animal is feeding to observe behavior and a clear view to feed rations throughout the cycle.

Feed Containment

The Mangers are equipped with a Nose Rail that will prevent animals from throwing feed. Feed and the associated weight remains in the manger throughout the feeding cycle ensuring accuracy.

Modular Manger is built to last

Made of an aerated foam core plastic that is very durable, resistant to cold weather cracks, chew resistant, and pressure washable.

 

Calan Data Ranger Compatible

Ideal height with large opening for feed dispensing and vacuum Weigh Backs

High Rise Capable

The Calan Modular Feed Mangers can be utilized with our High Rise system. This allows barn managers to lift the entire Calan System up and out of the way when studies are not being conducted.

Like all Calan products the Modular Feed Manager is built for research and with proper maintenance should last a decade or more in production.

HIGH RISE EQUIPPED MODULAR FEED MANGER

High Rise Capable: The Modular Feed Mangers can be utilized with our High Rise system. This allows barn managers to lift the entire Calan System up and out of the way when studies are not being conducted.

MOBILE FEED TUB

The research our customers conduct can vary significantly based upon the intended results.  Not every test is the same.  The feeding system you choose to invest in should be adaptable to future test scenarios your institute may embark on. Many of the key elements of the Calan System have been designed with this in mind. Another example of this is the Calan Mobile Tubs. Not only are they mobile, these tubs are designed to accommodate numerous testing scenarios. Like all Calan products, the Mobile Tubs are built for research. Key features and functions include:

 

Adjustable to various sized animals. From young calves to full grown milking cows

Indoor or outdoor use

Intensive metabolism research facilities or outdoor calf behavior monitoring

Highly Durable

Compatible with the Calan Data Ranger or Ranger Mate systems
