Key factors in successful calf rearing include a high standard of hygiene, intelligent, labour-saving design and maximum animal comfort. HUESKER is now offering a new concept, addressing all these aspects, for the optimisation of environmental conditions in calf barns. Under the banner "Only a healthy calf can grow into a prize cow", tailored solutions are developed in collaboration with practitioners from livestock building specialists and experienced veterinaries, physical technicians of HUESKER's partner VET.SMART®.
The two basic system components are a ventilation tube for the supply of germ-free, oxygen-rich, pollution-free fresh air, and a climate-optimised calf cubicle offering calves a hygienic, animal-friendly environment. Not only do the calves benefit directly from a high-comfort micro-climate, the job of farm workers is also simplified. Optional extras include the Lubratec® Calf roll-up ventilation system and the Lubrated light ridge. These enhance the concept by allowing higher air change rates and providing additional daylight. The simple building structure also cuts construction costs.
