group calf hutches
Topcalf offers various solutions for housing your calves in groups. We offer both mobile group hutches that can be placed without a permit and fixed group hutches with extra large lying areas.
In the past, several studies have shown that housing calves has a positive influence on their development. For example, housing calves in groups results in better feed intake and better social development of the calf, with the calf adapting more easily to new situations.
At Topcalf, we believe in combining individual housing with pair housing and group housing. With Topcalf’s calf pens, it is possible to first house your calves individually after birth, after which one or more partitions can be removed and the calves can be kept in pairs or in small groups.
For housing calves in groups, Topcalf offers 2 solutions:
