Calf warmers should be a livestock supply staple when raising livestock

Calf warmers create an excellent shelter and warm nurturing environment for newborn calves. Usually constructed out of a durable, long-lasting, and rust-proof medium-density poly, this animal shelter is a must for newborns and should be in every livestock supply arsenal.
Newborn calves require a warm enclosed space during the critical hours right after birth. They are vulnerable to the cold and need a safe place to recover from the birthing process. Barn World calf warmers have top-of-the-line heaters located in the rear of the warmer in a separate enclosure that provides a steady warm, circulating flow of air. The area is large enough so the calf can stand up or lie down while remaining in the interior warmth of the heater. Being contained allows the identity scent to remain intact so the mothers will instinctively reclaim their rejuvenated infant once they’re ready to be released.

Barn World carries both a PD Calf Warmer and a Sioux Steel calf warmer with the following top-of-the-line features including a fully controllable and automated heater.

Livestock Supplies are a necessity for newborns

To keep your young, newborn livestock healthy and to give them a great start at a long and healthy life, a calf warmer is a must during the crucial hours after birth. You know it’s always in the middle of a blizzard when they arrive. It’s a tremendous shock to go from their safe, warm confines to literally dropping onto frozen earth while still wet.

Providing a safe and comfortable environment for your animal to recover from the shock of birth is a must to ensure a great beginning in a stress-free and most importantly, a warm setting.

To take advantage of all the calf warmer has to offer, call (720) 238-2190 or visit today for all your livestock supply needs and remember, they carry everything from cattle guards to saddle pads!
