Individual Calf Pens
Calf pens are a necessary part of any well-planned calf house. ODEL Calf pens have a plastic stepper slat or a treated timber slat making the pens more hygienic, easier to clean and more comfortable for the calf. These individual calf pens have a press steel plate sides and front that is hot dip galvanised. The hinged front gate provide easy access to the calf.
All calf penning gates are height adjustable with stock proof latching. There are diagonal or horizontal bar feed gates available to suit any setting. We have plastic slats available to provide extra comfort for your calves in lie back area, reducing labour and cost of bedding.
Feed troughs and drinkers are essential for any group calf penning facility. We have a wide range of feed troughs available suitable for milk or meal. There are both saddle and wall mounted hayracks available to suit any type of penning. We have a wide range of plastic and cast iron drinking bowls available with protection frames to prevent the drinker from any damage.
These types of group penning can improve calf performance and makes it easy to control and manage animals. Most importantly it is easy to clean. O Donovan Engineering specialises in both new calf houses and conversions of existing buildings.
