Environmental conditions in two large calf sheds



Environmental conditions in two large calf sheds



Zivocisna Vyroba 19(12): 889-902



Two large calf sheds (for approx. 1200 calves each) with different floor type were compared. For sheds with a hard floor plus straw bedding and for sheds with a slatted floor resp., calf group size averaged 10 and 14 at intake at approx. 2 wk of age, 13 and 21 for 2- to 3-mth-old calves fed milk substitute, and 30 and 21 for 4- to 6-mth-old calves fed solid food. Microclimatic readings were similar for both types of shed.
