New, Full-Open Modular Pen Offers Increased Ventilation

The industry-first panel will debut at World Dairy Expo

HampelHampel Animal Care has released the Calf-Tel® Enhanced Ventilated Indoor Pen Back, it was announced today.

"Raising calves indoors carries the inherent challenge of proper ventilation, a crucial piece to raising healthy calves," said Joe Weber, marketing manager, Hampel Corporation. "Most systems have a solid back with minimal vent openings, but our new Enhanced Ventilated Indoor Pen Back provides maximum ventilation in indoor conditions."

Debuting at World Dairy Expo, October 4-8, the nearly full-open pen back provides more ventilation than any other modular plastic pen system, Weber said, enhancing calf comfort and long-term health.

The innovative, new pen back features a molded-in, sturdy wire screen that significantly increases ventilation. A cover that slides easily into place for added warmth in extreme cold weather conditions comes standard.

"Calf-Tel has long set the standard for quality, durability and excellence in calf housing systems," Weber said. "The additional ventilation provided by our new pen back is an industry-first that raises the bar in improved calf health one more time."

Hampel Animal Care, a division of Hampel Corporation, began serving the agriculture industry in 1981 with the introduction of Calf-Tel housing systems. Today it is the number one choice for calf housing, worldwide. For more information, visit
