What do Peter's Farm calves eat?

Peter's Farm calves get a specially designed menu. This unique menu consists of high-grade calf milk, muesli and shredded rapeseed. On top of this, the calves have free access to fresh drinking water all day. Every calf decides for themselves how much they want to eat, ruminate, stand, walk, lay down, play or sleep. This way, every calf is in charge of their own bio rhythm.

The calves drink their calf milk with the use of an automatic drinking station. Every calf has a chip in their ear that is recognized by the computer as soon as the calf enters the drinking station. All data is saved on the computer so the farmers at Peter's Farm can see exactly how much and how quick every calf drinks, as well as how often the calf returns to the drinking station. On top of this, Peter's Farm calves get multigrain mix muesli and shredded rapeseed.
