Calf-shelters overview

Redpath calf shelters are built both big and small!, we have buildings that provide shelter for calf rearers that produce more than 2000 calves per annum and others that just rear a dozen or so.  The types of buildings will vary dependent on the size of the operation however typically the shelter is one of Redpath’s 9.6m span or 8m span arch designs.  These may be supplied with a ‘roof only’ type covering or have the side and end walls closed in with simple shade textile.  Another popular option is to fit ‘roll up wall blinds’ along the sidewalls (or to one wall) of the shelter which gives improved control in poor weather.
