Promotes natural suckling behaviour. The shape and choice of materials of the Vital Teat help promote natural suckling behaviour which contributes to healthy calves.

Slower and more challenging suckling satisfies the animals' urge to suckle. It also increases saliva production and this aids digestion. The teat tip also has a curved shape to prevent the milk dripping.
