Redpath calf shelters, for raising quality calves.
The Redpath permanent type claf shelters are fully engineered and designed for long service life. These permanent designs compete with traditional hard clad tin shed designs but offer a natural light and warm housing system

You can expect improved calf health, Improved Vitamin D exposure, increased calf weight gain, better resistance to disease, and a reduction in the cost of calf production.
Redpath calf shelters are supplied with a factory backed warranty, super long life Duratough 215 micron covering is used which is the same as Redpath uses on its family of commercial Dairyshelter buildings.
