Extract

In many Research Centres in the UK, dairy and beef cattle access their daily allowance of forage, and perhaps concentrates, through Calan gate type feeding systems. As up to four animals may share one feed unit in these systems, only a proportion of animals can gain access to feed at any one time. This may have a negative effect on food intake and subsequent animal performance. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the effects on intake from offering food through a Calan gate type system, compared to a conventional easy feed system.
