A unique insulated housing system allowing calves to be reared in social groups of 7-10 up to 12 weeks of age in their own micro environment, this promotes healthy calf growth due to non-sharing of airspace between next door groups. You are able to house a great number of calves by linking a number of housing bays together as you need. The well thought-out housing design ensures simple and very practical working processes for feeding, watering, animal inspections and cleaning to ensure easy calf management. The bays are separated by 52mm reinforced fully insulted poly propylene recycled plastic walls and resistant to ammonia and UV rays which gives the building long lifetime. Each unit measure 3m wide x 5m depth, 2m rear height x 2.5m front with 1m overhang of the fully insulted roof sheets.
Optional extra outdoor walking pen can be fixed to the front of the unit.
