Calf Nurseries

The floor of the Calf Nurseries are taking shape. The trench for the shuttle cleaner is in the centre, and wood forms for trench drains are installed on the left and right. The 4 calf nurseries will be arranged with individual pens that can also be easily converted to group housing to allow for different types of research trials. Robotic feeding for groups will be installed, and connections for water, power and drainage are being installed to allow for individual calf feeding robots in the future.

Multiple concrete crews continue to work in various sections of the facility – the number of curbs, trenches and slopes allow for only small sections to be poured at a time.
