The Braden Start Bottle & Nipple features a unique vertical-opening nipple design that helps foster early grain feeding, which aids in rumen development, resulting in size increase, more nutrition absorption ability, and earlier microbial action in the rumen. Tests show that this results in more milk and meat production in the long run.
Calves show a strong nursing instinct the first three days after birth, and the design of the Braden Start Bottle makes it easy for calves to get the hang of eating dry feed through a bottle. Clean, dry feed is efficiently dispensed with no spilled buckets or open feed troughs, where contamination can put your valuable calves at risk for disease, to worry about.
The convenient top-loading Braden Start Bottle itself is made of clear, strong polyvinyl chloride. Exclusive design of the rubber snap-on nipple lets the calf get virtually all of the feed with very little spillage, and one nipple will generally last for 2-3 calves.
