World’s Toughest Calf Hutches at Eurotier

Billed as the ‘World’s Toughest Calf Hutches’ the Agri-Plastics range is on show at EuroTier 2012 in Hanover, Germany from 13-16 November on stand B29 in hall 13.

Agri-Plastics calf hutch

Available across the UK and RoI from Teemore Engineering the range of Agri-Plastics calf hutches on display at EuroTier includes the new group calf hutch.

Being launched on the European market at EuroTier and nominated for a Gold Medal Award the group calf hutch has a three in one rear door designed for easy access.

This makes it simple to bed by hand or machine and much easier to check on calves as well as ensuring better ventilation. The Agri-Plastics group calf hutch also has a bedding bar, which can be used when doors are left open.

These features are already popular with farmers using the robust Agri-Plastics single calf hutches, which give calves a healthier, well ventilated environment and reduces the time needed for routine feeding and bedding.

Agri-Plastics calf hutches, designed in Ontario by dairy farmers for dairy farmers, are manufactured using melt blended, high grade polyethylene and moulded in one solid piece to arrive fully assembled.

This means of manufacture gives 50% better impact strength, a longer life and, being opaque, high UV protection. A major advance on alternative hutches made from dry polyethylene.

No wonder Agri-Plastics Calf Hutches come with a 10 year warranty, the best on the market, and are able to withstand the extremes of our climate.

Another great feature is the integrated, double walled poly skid design on the base, which has huge practical advantages over using a wooden foundation prone to decay.

“This group hutch being launched at the EuroTier Trade Fair, like all the revamped Agri-Plastics range, has so many practical design pluses that it is a world away from other calf hutches on the market,” says Noel Kelly, EU marketing manager for Agri-Plastics.
