Developed in response to farmer and vet concerns around calf safety, calf comfort and usability with traditional oesophageal feeders. The Flexi Tuber not only prevents bruising and injury to your calf, it also makes the procedure easier for you. With a very easy swallowing and comfortable design, struggling and stress is minimised, allowing you to relax and focus on providing the best calf care without the concerns
- Easy to swallow.
- Avoids bruising or injury.
- No pressure on airway during feeding.
Farmers have consistently reported how much easier the Antahi Tubers are to use and how much happier their calves are. Trials demonstrated an 88% reduction in behavioural calf stress compared with more rigid feeders. Procedure time was almost halved due to the smoother process.
The combination of mouthpiece, flexible tube, specially designed safety tip and calf size markers ensure maximum calf comfort, calf safety and usability during tube feeding. The Flexi Tuber mouthpiece has a soft crosspiece for easy positioning and for the calf to chew on during feeding, it can be held in place with one hand and also has the option of strapping the mouthpiece in position for a more hands free action.
- Maximum comfort
- Minimum stress
By sliding the tube through the mouthpiece, the tube will gently find its way around the delicate tissues of the throat to safely enter the oesophagus. When in position the tube will flex with the calf, avoiding any painful pressure points and injury.
Attachment only - for use with the 4 litre/1 gallon Antahi Feeder bottle.
