1 gallon colostrum storage and feeding bags, custom designed and built by Diamond City Farm Supply!
Why Colostrum Bags?
When farmers needed to store colostrum in times past, they usually had to resort to devices such as ice cream pails, pop bottles, and milk jugs. But no one put serious thought into the type of container best suited for the storage of this “liquid gold” we call colostrum.
As scientific testing increased our knowledge about the quality of colostrum, we learned how important it was to preserve (freeze) good-quality colostrum in sanitary conditions. Eventually, we discovered that equally important is the time used to thaw and warm the frozen colostrum to the desired temperature, as well as the way colostrum is administered to the calf. Obviously, no longer could we use the ice cream pail, pop bottle, or other containers directly as a feeding medium.
Why? Because those containers were clumsy and ineffective. They were hard to clean, and it was difficult to properly warm their contents. Nor could calves feed directly from them.
But we’ve worked tirelessly to overcome these problems. In fact, in 2010, we provided dairy farmers with a simple solution. The Diamond City Farm supply colostrum bag.
Not only can our bag be quickly thawed and heated to the right temperature, but its design has been thoughtfully crafted every step of the way.
Here’s what you need to know about the colostrum bag pictured here:
Very sturdy 8 mil plastic — which is recyclable!
Convenient, ergonomic handle to hold the bag while filling or transporting
Wide mouth that makes filling a cinch, especially when using the colostrum collection pail. It also accommodates standard nipples, drench tubes and caps.
Grommet on the bottom of the bag so it can be hung around the neck (or IV-pole) with a unique strap (available) — freeing your hands to feed calves
Fill lines on the bag so you can easily approximate 1L, 2L, 3L, 3.5L, and 4L of colostrum
Matte writing surface on fill lines to record colostrum values, dates, cow#, and more
Thin, robust design, which allows for a fast freeze and thaw process
- One-time sanitary use
