The calf taxi: Improving youngstock rearing

Thomas Dijkstra, dairy farmer in the Netherlands, is hard at work to optimalize his youngstock rearing.

Because the calves on his farm are housed in a different barn - more than 250 meters away - he built a special calf taxi to give newborn calves a clean shelter directly after birth and later transport them safely to their new housing. This way, they get a good start in life. The costs for this mobile housing system were about €600, and so far it has been working well!
