Stallion Plastics approached Designbrand to help develop a new calf feeder to meet market demand and complement their existing range of calf rearing equipment. The new design has been received extremely well at market introduction, enabling the factory to run at full capacity.

The designers were able to provide a variety of ideas integrating feedback from the “field” while maintaining easy workable solutions for the client’s process technology and incorporating parts of their existing tooling. This allowed a very quick turn-around for the project and an early return on the client’s investment.

The development included user ergonomic evaluation, flow test to prevent milk spillage, minimization of residual milk, calf rearing anatomy as well as the reduction of parts as compared to existing calf feeders.
