In colostrum correct feeding of calves is relevant for the further growth and development. When nursing it is impossible calves use a variety of structures and devices. They allow mechanizing and automating the process of feeding calves. The device must meet all of the zoo technical and veterinary requirements. Also the device should be reliable in operation, easy to operate and comply with
established safety regulations. However, the existing technical means for the feeding of colostrum does not meet the physiological requirements that must be close to natural feeding. With the aim of developing promising means of calves we have proposed the
classification of technical means for feeding newborn calves. Which implies the necessity of new technical means, allowing to simulate the process of natural feeding. In this case, the liquid feed will flow into the stomach of the calf in small portions, easier to digest, which means that it reduces the risk of gastrointestinal diseases.
