A newborn calf is much more susceptible to infection compared to an older animal. Hygienic housing for calves is therefore recommended. A number of guidelines are important when choosing calf housing.
Avoid infections in the first 8 weeks
The first 8 weeks after birth, calves are most susceptible to infections. In order to ensure the health of the calves, it is important that they are housed separately. In addition, it is advisable to provide a separate drinking and feeding trough for each calf. Buckets and feeding troughs should also not be changed.

Maintenance-friendly and hygienic
In order to maintain hygienic housing for calves, it is important that the calf pens are easy to maintain. Well-maintained calf housing reduces disease and thus guarantees optimal hygiene.
The calf pens we provide are sloping. At the back, there is a groove across the width of the calf pen to allow urine to drain away. In addition, the plastic panels are easy to clean with a high-pressure cleaner and are resistant to the usual cleaning chemicals.
The pens are on wheels, making them easy to move to a place for cleaning. Thanks to all these tools the hygienic housing for calves is guaranteed.
Sufficient space for extra comfort
As well as hygienic housing for calves, it is important that the calf has plenty of space. The calves should have enough space to lie down, rest, stand up and lick themselves. Sufficient comfort for the calf is therefore a factor not to be forgotten.

Pick your own colours (combinations)
The calf pens are available in different colours. For more information about which colours and colour combinations are available, please contact us.
Calf must not hurt themselves or hurt the hygienic housing for calves. We ensure that there are no sharp edges to the loft.
Light and strong
The calf pens are light and strong. They owe this strength to the internal cell structure of the panels used.
Good insulation value
The calf pens have a good insulation value. This is due to the low thermal conductivity of plastic and thanks to the hermetically enclosed air in the cell structure. Internal condensation in the hygienic housing for calves is therefore excluded.
All Paneltim panels are made of 100% recyclable materials. They are also free of toxic substances. Prior to the purchase of these raw materials, a systematic quality control is carried out.
