Trusti Tuber Trial Data – Trusti Tuber Vs Rigid Feeder
The trial involved 28 mixed breed and sized calves, all less then 4 days old, split into two groups so there were an even range of sizes and ages. One group was fed with a ‘rigid feeder’ and the other with the Trusti Tuber, both fed 2 litres of colostrum.

Stopped early due to calf distress
NOTE: 6 calves (42%) in the rigid feeder group were stopped early (before the full 2 litres were given) due to exhibiting what was deemed too high stress behaviour. Zero calves in the Trusti Tuber group were stopped early. This has high practical implications on farm with staff often stopping early and the calf not receiving the full amount of colostrum.
