Why choose Store & Thaw?
The Store & Thaw System
Allows colostrum to be tested, packaged & frozen. The thawing system defrosts colostrum rapidly and can also be used for pasteurisation if required.
Allows efficient collection of colostrum so that it can be tested and frozen for future use.

Thawing & Pasteurising Tank
The portable heater/stirrer unit clamps to the side and the insulated lid prevents heat escaping.It can be set at a max of 50°C for warming colostrum or 60°C for 60 mins for pasteurisation.
Store & Thaw Colostrum bags are multi layered with welded seams for extra strength. The wide mouth corner gland allows for quick filling and emptying. They are 5 litre bags which can be filled with up to 4 litres of colostrum, but a quicker thaw will be achieved storing 2 litres of colostrum per bag. Available for separate online purchase soon.
The Speedyfeeder bottle comes with a teat and a tube alternative. The bottle has a valve to allow a fast or slow flow. Our most popular feeding bottle to date. We recommend the 4 litre version.
While the majority of calf rearers like to tip the colostrum into a teated feeding bottle, sometimes it’s quicker to feed via an oesophageal tube. It’s important that a Vet shows a novice how to use a tube, as incorrect use can cause drowning.
We offer 2 tubes which connect directly to the Store & Thaw bag. Feeding direct from the bag can prevent contamination from a dirty bottle.
The Trusti Tuber is a novel product designed by a Vet from New Zealand. The tube has graduated weights marked on it, so it gives a guide on how far to insert the tube for a 20kg, 50kg, 80kg and 110kg calf. It comes complete with a Store & Thaw bag connector.
Mini Calf Feeder
The Mini Calf Feeder is a tube with a small bulb designed to be comfortable for small breeds and premature calves. It comes complete with a Store & Thaw bag connector and a pinch clamp on the tube.
Colostrum Carrier Bag
Handling a wet slippery calf and a colostrum bag requires patience and dexterity. We provide a colostrum carrier bag so the warm colostrum can be lowered when inserting the tube, carried across the shoulder, or hooked onto a hurdle when dispensing by gravity. The rope bag has an adjustable strap and is reusable, robust and washable.
