Comfy Calf Suites Styles1

post/stationary style

The post style calf suite is ideal for use in barns where group penning is desired. The posts from which the gates hang are lagged into a concrete base and remain in place all of the time. This allows you to pull out the odd panel to make larger pens and to group a few calves together after they are weaned but before they get moved to larger group pens. Studies have shown that this social integration on a small scale benefits the calves by facilitating the transition to an even larger group pen. Removing panels also gives you the ability to clean out an entire row of pens all at once with a skid loader while leaving the posts and front gates in place.

HOOP STYLE

Our hoop style calf suite is a stand alone unit which can be used in barns that do not have a concrete base to fasten the unit to and where all calves will only be individually housed. If you wish to convert individual pens into group pens as the calves mature, please see our post style calf suite. The hoop style makes cleaning the pens remarkably easy. Simply pop off the hoop and bottom retainer, and pull out the panel hinge and gate as one piece. It can now easily be washed in a designated wash area or stored out of the way of the skid loader that is being used to clean the pens.
