Celebrating 40 Years of Innovation: A Tribute to Urban Calf Feeders

Last week, our team had the privilege of attending the momentous 40th anniversary celebration of Urban calf feeders in Germany. It was an event filled with reflection, gratitude, and anticipation for the future, commemorating four decades of unparalleled success, innovation, and community.

From humble beginnings to global recognition, Urban calf feeders have been at the forefront of revolutionizing calf nutrition and care since their inception in 1984 by owner Helmut Urban. Over the years, Urban has consistently pushed boundaries, setting new standards for excellence in the industry.

The journey of Urban calf feeders has been marked by significant milestones, each one a testament to their unwavering commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction:

  • 1987: Introduction of the first computerized feeder, revolutionizing feeding precision and efficiency.
  • 1997: Invention of the groundbreaking U40 feeder, setting a new benchmark for calf feeding technology.
  • 2008: Introduction of the innovative Milkshuttle, simplifying milk transport and distribution on farms.
  • 2016: Launch of the Alma Pro, a game-changer in calf feeding systems, combining cutting-edge technology with user-friendly design.

In 2002, Urban made its mark in Ireland with the installation of the first feeder, laying the foundation for a longstanding partnership with Irish farmers. Creva International is proud to be part of this partnership, bringing state-of-the-art calf feeding technology to farms across Ireland.

The 40th anniversary celebrations, held at Urban GmbH & Co. KG in Wüsting near Bremen, Germany, were a testament to the dedication and passion of the entire Urban team, as well as the unwavering support of customers and partners worldwide. 

As we reflect on this milestone, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to Urban calf feeders on their remarkable achievements. Here's to the legacy of innovation, excellence, and community that defines Urban, and to the countless more milestones yet to come.

Congratulations Urban calf feeders! Here's to the next 40 years of shaping the future of calf care!
