MultiMax

Creating a manageable group environment

When calves raised individually are placed in large groups, the stress from competition and social pressure can lead to setbacks in growth and health. Placing 4 to 6 similarly sized, weaned calves in a MultiMax group calf-raising system is the best way to ease the transition. Continued growth and health will be attained as animals bond into a social group.

  • Constructed of high-molecular-weight polyethylene that will not breakdown and deteriorate
  • Large entryway for maximum ventilation
  • Extra hutch height allow animals to stay in the unit longer
  • Treated lumber base provides a stable and secure foundation
  • Ridge top ventilation for improved air circulation

This is What Makes it a Calf-Tel

No other solution can boast our combination of features and benefits.

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.

The Way We Make Our Products
The Way We Make Our Products

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.

We Care About Comfort

We Care About Comfort

Happy, 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.

We Go with the Flow
We Go with the Flow

Ventilation 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.

...because 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.

Money Talks

For over 35 years, Calf-Tel has been producing products that are built to stand the test of time. Longer-lasting product leads to lower lifetime costs. Combine this with the cost savings and benefits of superior calf health, and you can see why approximately 2-million calves are raised in Calf-Tel housing systems worldwide each year.

Adding MultiMax hutches to our calf raising program allowed us to ease the transition from individual to group housing. Calves enter the MultiMax pens at weaning and are then moved to a larger group pen one month later. This transition period allows the calves to adjust to drinking from open water sources, hay and a total mixed ration are also introduced at this point too. Smoothing out the transition period from individual housing to group housing has really improved overall calf health.
