This Makes my Life Easier: Camelbak Brush
It’s essential that clean colostrum feeding equipment is used to deliver this vital nutrition to the newborn calf. The brush shown in this photo is designed to clean the long narrow tubes of Camelbak® hydration packs. Those tubes are very similar to esophageal feeder tubes. These brushes allow calf feeders to clean tubes from top to bottom and can get to areas where other brushes may not reach. The firm, yet bendable stems on the brush make it easier to move up, down and around to clean the tube.
Sara Schilling of Schilling Farms LLC in Darlington, Wisconsin, said, “This has become my ‘go-to’ brush to keep our esophageal tubes the cleanest for our newborn calves.”
