As farmers discovering the benefits of group housing for calves and themselves, certainly group calf hutch is getting more popular.
Not to mention, the first days of a calf are very vital for them to be a healthy and productive adult. Therefore on many farms calves are individually penned for the first few days after birth to ensure that they receive adequate colostrum and attention. After that, from seven days of age they are group penned.
