The Trusti Pasteur Pro is designed for use with Trusti Colostrum Bags: it provides an easy-to-use programmable and automatic method of pasteurising colostrum. High precision thermometers ensure water is heated accurately to the required 60C. This ensures the precious antibodies within the colostrum are not damaged by heat, yet harmful bacteria are killed.
The unit features a cooling function for quickly reducing the temperature of the pasteurised colostrum. So it can be cooled down for ‘safe’ feeding to the young calf. Alternatively, it can be cooled down further for storage.
In addition, a preheating program allows water to be held at 50C in the well-insulated unit. This enables the thawing of frozen colostrum to be quicker. So the new-born calf can receive its first feed sooner.
The Trusti Pasteur Pro has been developed by New Zealand company Antahi which specialises in calf rearing equipment. The unit is supplied as part of a complete system for not only the pasteurisation and thawing of colostrum, but also the administration of colostrum to the calf. Two feeding options are included which can be attached to the Trusti Colostrum Bag – the Trusti Tuber and a teat.
