At YOLO, we’ve taken a great concept and have made it even better through good design and smart engineering.
Give your calves a good start and allow them to build strong immune systems in the germ-free environment of an easy-to-clean, individual calf hutch.
In partnership with the Wynn-with Dairy Farm, we have developed the YOLO Moo Igloo, a robust rotomoulded calf hutch. We’ve also developed a YOLO Garden Pen, with bucket holders, that pivots to tilt upwards for easy handling and storage.
Individual calf hutches with attached pens are like townhouses with small gardens. They provide shelter from the elements and access to an enclosed outdoor area. The YOLO Moo Igloo is a good size at 1.7m long, 1m wide and 1.1m high.
Our YOLO Garden Pen is constructed from galvanised steel tubing and round bar. Strong and sturdy, it provides your calf with a secure outside area. At 1.1m wide and 1.4m long this pen is sufficiently spacious for a calf to turn around.
This pivoting panel fence tilts upwards to make it possible for one worker to move the hutch and pen as one unit. It is easy to assemble, dismantle, move and store.
Galvanised holders hook onto the YOLO Garden Pen to securely hold standard five-litre (5l) food and water buckets.
Where larger structures are heavy, difficult to move and let in draughts, our YOLO Moo Igloo for individual calves offers better shelter and insulation with variable ventilation.
Protect your calf while its immune system is still developing. Keeping calves separated from their peers limits their exposure to bacteria and reduces the risk of illness. Housing calves in individual hutches prevents diseases from spreading like a runny nose at daycare.
Calf hutches can also be placed in an open field as shelter from sun, wind and rain for larger calves and other animals like sheep and goats.
OUR SPECIAL DESIGN FEATURES
Our YOLO Moo Igloo is rotomoulded as a single unit. Only the air vent closure is attached after delivery. There are no components that can be broken or lost.
This robust hutch is manufactured from non-porous, UV-stabilised polyethylene.
White objects reflect all light and absorb the least heat. Out in the sun, a white calf hutch is even cooler than an opaque hutch and it will last longer.
BUTTRESSED SIDE WALLS
Our design incorporates buttressed side walls for structural reinforcement.
Good ventilation enables better respiratory health and heat regulation. Our three rear air vents are quick to adjust and they allow for variable airflow.
A galvanised steel frame around the base of the hutch forms a strong structural support to move and turn it over, and for greater longevity.
The YOLO Moo Igloo is stackable for convenient not-in-use storage and transport.
