As the owner/operator of a 150-year-old family farm, I've learned the value of quality and reliability in farm equipment.
Like a lot of farmers working to raise calves, I found every common calf bottle-holder on the market just could not handle the natural wear and tear my calves put them through.
It seemed like I had just two options:
- Spend my time hand-bottling calves
- Spend my time fixing substandard holders
So I came up with a third option: I designed and built my own calf bottle holder.
I've been using these with my calves for three years now (I'm on my sixth major design improvement), and I can tell you with great confidence: These calf bottle holders last.
The design is simple. The materials are industrial strength. And the construction is farm-tough. Together these qualities combine to make the first farm-duty calf bottle holder I've ever found.
Before I knew it, my neighbors wanted a batch and then the local hardware store.
In the years before I came back to take over the family farm, I worked doing machine language programming and systems automation, so I'm able to produce these here on our home place. And, with a lot of help from a dedicated wife and eight great kids, we're staying ahead of demand while still raising our calves and a few thousand chickens.
So here you have it: Our website.
Thanks for visiting, and please feel free to use the "Contact Us" page to send us a note. We would love to hear from anybody looking for heavy-duty calf bottle holders. Also send us a note if you're interested in having any other custom-designed or custom-built items for farm use.
We're happy to sell retail or wholesale. And if you're not so sure you're ready to commit, ask us about shipping out a sample to you. We can ship you one to 10,000 bottle holders.
