Animal Welfare Regulation

Suitable in accordance with conventional animal welfare regulations
National regulations specify how long and in what minimum areas calves may be kept. Our calf hutches and boxes as well as our modular fenced housing comply with these regulations and are optimally designed to meet the requirements of calf rearing.
