Calf Rearing Unit

The Calf Company Calf Rearing Unit

We have spent many years perfecting our calf rearing unit, enabling us to produce high quality livestock.

Pool Head Farm near Winsford, Cheshire is The Calf Company Calf Rearing Unit. Pool Head Farm is a commercial unit, producing in excess of 600 calves per year. These calves are reared to the highest standards of animal welfare creating our own standard of excellence. How we achieve this is by sourcing batches specifically for customer in mind, directly off farms that meet our health standard. Using our own blended Milk Powder formulas, supplementary products, equipment, housing as well as depth of knowledge in calf practise, we are able to produce this. Calves are health checked, weighed and typically 150kg when leaving farm fully vaccinated, fed on a 18% protein concentrate and forage diet; all procedures on the unit comply with the FABBL farm assurance guidelines.

We love to welcome buyers on farm to see the calves & pick what they like.
