Calf/Sheep/Goat Shelters

NZ Wide for over 20 years

Great product. 2nd year using calf shelters and calves love them. Easy to put up and pack up. And after market service has been fantastic for any issues we did have with our 5 shelters!! Million Springs Farms

Our very popular calf shelters are made to protect your calves during the important months when they are being hand fed and raised.  We have been making them for over 20 years and frequently have farmers buying one in their first year and then after finding them very effective, buy more the next year.

 

Buyers have also used these for sheep & goats although the goats like to use them as trampolines which is really cute until they break a pole & it all ends in tears.

  • Light-weight, yet strong
  • Easy to erect and to move about
  • Proven over 10 years of hard use

Previous buyers of our calf shelters tell us how much the calves enjoy these shelters and how well they do as a result. The low height of the roof keeps the calves warmer compared to an open shed, helping to increase growth rate.

 

Available in 5 lengths:

55 calves – 6 bay – 10.8m long

45 calves – 5 bay – 9.0m long

35 calves – 4 bay – 7.2m long
25 calves – 3 bay – 5.4m long
16 calves – 2 bay – 3.6m long 

(number of calves is approximate as calf breeds vary in size)

 

 

The calf shelters are made in a durable  HDPE fabric that will give at least five years of service under normal conditions. We've had feedback from several past customers recently that theirs are 14 years old & still going strong.  Had one (14 years old) in the other day where a wild stag had come down from the hills & decided to put his antlers through it - a couple of patches & off it went again.  Fabric was still looking really good.

 

They come with all necessary parts for easy erection including the poles, ropes and the pegs. All you need are two warratahs, spraypaint (for marking holes in the ground), a crowbar and a sledgehammer.

 

Easy to set up, move around, dismantle and store.  When the calves have made a mess, easily move it to a new, clean location.

 

If you require through ventilation at the back of the shelter, you can cut the lacing twine in half & lace from the bottom & then tie off at each side about 200mm from the top - this allows the rear wall to flap down & let air in.  

 

Made in Nelson in our factory, we also use pegs and poles made in Christchurch. The heavy duty polyethylene fabric is made in Australia so is great for our extreme UV conditions.
