The First of its Kind - Calf-Tel ECS
The Calf-Tel ECS Elevated Calf System is a plastic, climate controlled, elevated calf housing system. Designed as an effective alternative to traditional wood calf housing, the ECS plastic construction offers enhanced durability and facilitates a cleaner environment for sustainable calf health over wood construction. Additionally, the high molecular weight polyethylene will withstand the most brutal weather conditions and is further enhanced by UV-blocking pigment to prevent break down.

Features

Innovative plastic "Soft Grate" floor provides a comfortable calf raising surface and reduces bioburden with improved ventilation and waste pass-through. The steel base reduces bioburden and provides years of low maintenance service.
Roof can be opened for natural sunlight and enhanced ventilation, or shut during foul weather to keep the elements out, and both calf and feed dry. Hinged door provides easy calf portage in and out of the ECS.
The base-skirt design can be closed to the ground during low temperature months to keep warm air from escaping and cold air out. The heavy duty skirt is easily removed for added ventilation during the hot summer months.
Rear ventilation hatches, when opened, are designed to provide superior airflow compared to any other hutch on the market.
Solid steel base designed for maximum durability to withstand the rigors of heavy use over time.
