Agriculture / calf, calving, feeder, teat
German term or phrase: Nuckelaufnahme
I'm currently translating and have come across some terms I'm having issues translating. One is Nuckelaufnahme. The other is Anrechtsleuchte. The latter is referencing a light which is used to indicate to calves that it's time to feed. The former is some sort of teat I'm guessing, though I can't find any equivalent. I don't suppose anyone has any idea.

There are pictures to correspond to these words here:]]

Thank you in advance :)

Well, ProZ has screwed up the link, but it's easy to find by Googling Nuckelaufnahme.

The answer to the other question is this:
'Looking at the pictures, a Nuckel is a rubber teat for feeding calves like you already said. "Aufnahme" in this case is the part to which the teat is attached, so it should be something along the lines of "teat carrier", "teat attachment point" etc.'
I agree with this, and I don't feel there's any point discussing it again on ProZ.
