Advantages of Terrui calf hutch explained in detail
I. Further improve the calf feeding management program
The use of calf hutch equipment, in improving the living environment of calves at the same time, to further improve the calf feeding management program. Newborn calves are transferred to the calf hutch after birth, the implementation of the "island" on the plate, the plate is marked with birth weight, cow number, calf number and date of birth, etc., to facilitate daily feeding management. Easy to observe the calf's spirit, appetite and feces and other conditions, to develop different feeding programs. This is not only conducive to the growth and development of calves, but also can effectively control the waste of cow's milk and feed, cost savings.
2. Reduce the incidence of calf disease
After the birth of the calf, kept in the channel type of barn or isolation room in the cow bed, adjacent to the mother cow. As calves at this time the ability to resist pathogenic bacterial infection is very weak, it is easy to be infected with dysentery and respiratory diseases.
In addition, cow's milk is used as the calf's food source, and after lactation the calf still maintains the suckling behavior. Calves suck each other's nipples, bite their tails, and lick each other, and are more likely to eat dirt, which can easily lead to mutual infections.
If kept on a calf hutch, they can be effectively protected from pathogenic bacteria. "One calf per island", each calf is equipped with a special disinfectant bucket, water bucket and clean bedding grass. And the "island" is well ventilated, no pollution, so that the calf morbidity rate is greatly reduced.
3. Improve the survival rate of calves and production performance
Calf hutch sunny, fresh air, with a certain activity space. The "island" before the combination of fences into a sports field also provides ample space for calves to move around, which in turn makes the "island" of calves raised in the limbs and hooves solid and strong. Feeding programs can be tailored to each individual calf to ensure healthy conditions while increasing growth rates.
The soft and clean bedding grass in the "calf hutch" is conducive to the calf's adaptation to the grass, and if the calf eats part of the grass in its early days, it can accelerate the development of its rumen. According to statistics, the use of calf hutch equipment to cultivate newborn calves, can greatly improve their survival rate.
