Group housing in a snap
Once calves reach a certain phase they are ready to be moved into group housing. However, the transition isn’t always black and white. Recognizing this we worked with our customers to help them phase their calves into the group with a solution that’s both innovative and easy as one, two, three!
This is What Makes it a Calf-Tel
Whether you have a herd of 10 or 10,000, indoors or out, the Calf-Tel® family of products offers the world’s best and most cost-effective systems for raising healthy, productive calves.
There's always more than one way to do something, but only one best way. We thermoform Calf-Tel hutches out of extruded sheets of polyethylene. This process results in a molecular bonding within the plastic that is far superior to any other form of manufacturing--providing unmatched strength and durability.
The structural integrity of our Calf-Tel hutches are proven to stand the test of time. It’s not unusual to see our hutches still in use after 25 years on the job. Calf-Tel’s high-molecular weight is combined with a UV-blocking pigment—preventing premature degradation of the plastic. One less thing to worry about.
healthy calves are a direct result of comfort and climate. The opaque material
used on Calf-Tel hutches acts as a barrier to direct sunlight, producing shade
and lower temperatures. This material also reduces condensation, often found in
translucent hutches, which can build up during dramatic shifts in weather—
keeping calves dryer during cold winter days.
is critical in limiting respiratory illness and eliminating heat stress. The
flow of air is strategically engineered into Calf-Tel hutches, and enhanced by
an extra-large adjustable ventilation opening (largest in the industry) for
maximum comfort and breathability. Our indoor pen systems feature the AirMax
panel for improved air-flow in challenging conditions.
it’s worth promoting. You wouldn’t want to invite anything and everything into
the place you live. Your calves don’t want that either. However, many materials
on the market are extremely porous—like an open door with a dinner bell for
bacteria, pathogens, manure acids and other undesirables. Calf-Tel’s smooth
surfaces don’t have any pores, making them not only impervious to said
undesirables, but super-easy to clean and maintain. When combined with proper
management practices, calf raisers have found that our housing systems
contribute to lower mortality, morbidity and overall treatment costs, leading
to enhanced calf growth.
