Livestock can benefit from calf housing to protect them from the weather. If you are a small or large scale calf rearer and your animals need shelter then our polytunnels can offer a cost effective solution.
Polytunnels for calf housing has been used by farmers over many years to improve animal welfare and help increase profitability.
A stable protective environment reduces stress on the animals, housed animals are cheaper to feed than stock wintered outside.
Herd management becomes easier with increased comfort for both calf and herdsman. Calf survival rate can increase significantly through reduced mortality from exposure.
Our livestock housing have 1.5m straight sides, which allows us to have 1m of corrugated steel to allow calves to shelter from a breeze, they have 0.5m of high strength windbreak material above this which gives good ventilation above calf height.
The roof vents in the middle of the polytunnel allow warm air to escape through the polythene which gives a fresh airy atmosphere and a canopy over the top of this and gutters on both sides keeps the bedding dry.
These calf rearing polytunnels are highly popular as the white roof still allows through UV which will help disinfect the building between batches of calves.
