Abstract
Outdoor hutches are equal or superior to traditional methods of housing for calves regardless of season in Eastern Ontario. Hutch calves grew as well, consumed more starter and required less medical treatment than did calves housed indoors. Hutch calves required more labor time and feeding calves outdoors was less comfortable for operators on stormy days.
