Before Calf-Tel, animal housing was made mostly from wood — which is highly vulnerable to the elements. It breaks down, deteriorates and becomes a breeding ground for harmful bacteria.
Enter: Calf-Tel. Inspired by the belief that creative, well-designed thermoforming can make the world a better place, we began work on a calf hutch that would reduce disease, save more calves’ lives, require fewer antibiotics and bring healthier and more cost-effective dairy products to homes around the world. Today, Calf-Tel has become the world’s number one choice for calf housing. Backed by clean and efficient materials, Calf-Tel has improved the health and productivity of calf development.
A superior alternative.
Calf-Tel is the only thermoformed calf housing system on the market with a draw depth of nearly 60”. And it’s Hampel’s deep draw technology that enables Calf-Tel hutches to be formed from a single sheet of strong, durable plastic. In fact, they last so long that it’s not unusual to see Calf-Tel housing systems in use for 25 years or more — even in the most brutal weather conditions.
Meet our family.
Over the years, Hampel has expanded not only into a complete line of calf-housing products, but also into calf-raising consultancies. For nearly 30 years, the dairy world has turned to the experts at Calf-Tel for calf management techniques. And with an estimated two million calves raised in Calf-Tel housing every year, the verdict is in: more calves are raised in Calf-Tel housing than any other brand on the market.
