Description

Calf Huts

Calf Huts are proper housing which is essential for ensuring optimal conditions for rearing. Made of premium quality polyethylene, rotomolded, thus being insusceptible to shocks, weatherproof and of course UV-resistant. Calf hut for a group of 5 calves made of premium quality polyethylene, weather-proof and of course UV-resistant. Breeding your calves in a calf hut offers your calves ideal conditions for quick and healthy growth.

  • Always fresh air for your calf: adjustable three-hole ventilation in the rear wall.
  • Additional fresh air: adjustable ventilation in the roof (MIDI + MAXI)
  • For cleaning purposes, the calf hut can be put on end. The hut can be cleaned with the usual cleaning material.
  • Calves rest in a dry and protected place, protected by wind and weather.
  • In case of very high temperatures the calves are protected inside from direct sunlight and find a very comfortable interior resting area both in summer and wintertime.
  • The position of the ventilation system, the air exchange can be adjusted to every weather condition.
  • The smooth surface is easy to clean!
  • Rotomolded, thus being insusceptible to shocks, it does not break easily in comparison with calf huts made of GFK
  • A stainless-steel threshold and sideways reinforcement L-profiles reinforce the calf huts: built to last for years!
  • Large rotating loop can be easily reached from all sides for calf hut transportation.

Accessories for Calf Huts MINI, MIDI and MAXI

The calf huts offer maximum functionality which pays off during use or when cleaning them afterwards. Numerous accessories for indoor or outdoor feeding are available for both versions. They offer you the ideal way to care for your animals and can be combined according to the users’ wishes: e.g., pellets which should be given to the calf as of the 8th day onwards, can be dispersed to the animals in the hay container, or water in sufficient quantity in the buckets fixed in the hut or in the cage’s wall. Cage MAXI is equipped with two lugs for ease of transportation

5 principles of calf rearing

  1. Healthy growth
  2. Well-being
  3. Less diarrhea
  4. Good rumen development
  5. Labor

These principles contribute to optimal calf rearing on your farm. Calf rearing systems facilitate the well-being and growth of the calves, while helping to reduce labor costs. Healthy calves require less of the farmer’s care and concern. In other words: Happy Calf, Happy Farmer!

Comfort and Small models are practical and user-friendly calf hutches. With wheels integrated into the plastic threshold, the hutches are easy to relocate or move elsewhere for cleaning. A teat bucket and an information sheet can be attached to either corner of the fencing for quick and efficient replenishing and easy identification. Refreshing the straw bedding is a cinch with the hinged gate, whose smart lock can be opened with one hand.

The hutch can also be tipped forward using the hinge mechanism. It can be tilted well because of the practical handle, so the straw can be refreshed quickly. With the hutch tipped forward, the outdoor accommodation area can be mechanically cleaned quickly and easily. The coating on the interior of the hutches simplifies cleaning them.

Well-being

Our sophisticated rearing systems make an optimal contribution to healthy and fast-growing cattle. Proper ventilation in the hutches, partly through vent holes in the top front of the roof, keeps the interior dry and full of fresh air. The depth of the hutches is ideal for protecting calves in cold conditions. Furthermore, the sophisticated material of the hutches keeps the temperature inside cool when exposed to direct sunlight.

Growth

Healthy calves grow quickly and require little attention. The healthier a calf is during its first three months, the better it will develop. It is especially during those first three months that our systems prove their worth in terms of calves developing into highly productive dairy cows. The use of our products therefore has a positive effect on growth, well-being and labor: calves can be inseminated sooner, growth is boosted, significantly fewer calves drop out, and milk production increases substantially after the first two lactations.

  • High milk yield
  • Strong, durable cows
  • High life time production

Weight gain

Proper calf housing promotes the growth of the calf in the first 24 months. Optimal growth, for instance due to quality calf housing, will result in the calf weighing more in 24 months’ time than standard growth. What’s more, insemination can start sooner.

Temperature inside the calf hutches

A combination of heat-reflecting color (white) heat-resistant inner layer keeps the internal temperature of our calf hutches much lower. Calves consequently feel more comfortable and less stressed, which promotes growth and reduces their susceptibility to disease. Furthermore, bacteria on the inside of the calf hutch will multiply less rapidly at lower temperatures.

Solar radiation

To ensure our calf hutches remain at a comfortable temperature, the material we use has an incorporated UV protective layer. Furthermore, the material is bright white. As a result, the light transmittance of our Calf hutches is much lower than that of other brands. The transparency as well as UV permeability of our Calf hutches are visibly lower than that of other hutches. As heat and sunrays are shut out, they cannot bother the calf inside. The lower temperature also makes work easier for the farmer.

Draught is disastrous

Draught-free conditions are another very important factor in the well-being of the calves. Although it is vital that the air in the calf hutch is continuously refreshed to ensure the supply of fresh oxygen and the discharge of carbon dioxide and gaseous ammonia, draughts must be avoided. Calves can catch a cold and contract other ailments due to draughts. Our calf hutches have openings on one side only, namely at the front, through which fresh air is supplied and hot, polluted air is released. This creates a gentle, continuous airflow preventing any unnecessary swirling in the calf hutch.
Similar hutches of other brands often have vent holes at the back as well, causing colder air to mix with warm air. This ultimately creates downdraughts, a phenomenon in which hot air cools down and subsequently sinks, so that the calves constantly feel a draught. Furthermore, the airflow in the hutches of other brands is at head height, which is less comfortable for the calves.

Labor

Labor costs figure ever more importantly in the operational management of modern-day dairy farmers. Consequently, we focus heavily on ergonomics, user-friendliness, accessibility, flexibility, mobility, hygiene and durability during the development and production of our calf rearing systems.

As an example, our rearing systems are made of fiberglass reinforced polyester, a smooth and easy material to clean. Also, the hutches require no effort at all to lift which comes in handy when they require shifting or cleaning. A practical detail: With our systems, dairy farmers can get through their daily routine quicker and more efficiently. Convenient, fast, easy and therefore: efficient!
