Calves in Wellington County get the royal treatment by having their milk delivered right to them whenever they want it.  Lawrence Brubacher spent several months devising an automated system that includes a heated outdoor tank and pipeline.  He knew there had to be a way to save the time it took to manually feed all his calves with buckets.  Now, Lawrence is happy, the calves are happy and healthy, and the system may be coming to other farms in Ontario and Canada in the near future.
