Poly Dome Means Healthier Calves
Mini Dome–Originally introduced
to meet the growing need for a
smaller shelter, Mini Dome works
best for Guernsey and Jersey
Mini Dome’s round shape makes
it more wind-resistant and lets
more sunlight in than square huts.
In winter, turn Mini Dome toward
the sun. For summer shade, face
the unit away from the sun.
If you prefer, Mini Dome can also
be used as a total confinement
dome. A real advantage in northern
climates, total confinement keeps
calves warmer, dryer and out of the
wind. With Mini Dome, up to 10
weeks of winter confinement is ideal
for Guernsey and Jersey calves.
(For Holsteins we recommend the
original Poly Dome. The larger
Poly Dome will allow your Holstein
calves a larger exercise area and
maximum growth rate.).
Mini Dome is 72”(d)
x 60”(h). You can
customize your Mini
Dome with a hay feeder.
Choose Mini Dome
Deluxe for use with
your smaller animals.
To Consider – If you
have a calf hut with a
low door, whether it is a
half door or a full door,
there is an air movement across the
floor. This air movement takes the
body heat away from animals. This
happens every day
the temperature is
below 65 degrees.
in cold weather,
your calf is burning up 30% of
what you feed it just to keep its
body heat up. The Mini Dome
would work this same way with the
front open. This is the reason that
we do not recommend using this
unit open in cold weather.
