We are busy moulding a fleet of YOLO Moo Igloo calf hutches for a dairy farmer struggling to combat ‘crypto’. Cryptosporidosis exhibits as severe diarrhea and intestinal injury as a result of infection from the Cryptosporidium parvum organism (a protozoa, not bacteria). His calves are currently being raised in a permanent rearing facility environment where the calves are housed in groups of five. After the first 21 days his calves have been fine, so he is looking to raise newborns outdoors in our YOLO calf hutches for at least their first three weeks before moving them into the group structure.
