Feeding the calves

Image ID:
V044

Description:
The three types of housing for veal calves include hutches, individual stalls, and the group housing that is featured in this picture. Once the calf's immune system has reached the point where interaction with other animals is no longer a health risk, he may be moved from a hutch to group housing. This type of housing allows for more social interaction among animals, while still providing lots of light and fresh air. It also requires the farmer to be more attentive as it can be difficult to determine when an animal is not getting his fair share of food and water.
