Tunnel Vision

The new high-tech ventilation system is finally up and running in the calf barn!
This is such a simple idea- a plastic tube runs down the center of the barn and a fan pushes fresh air through tiny holes placed all down the tube.
We are really excited to see if this helps cut down the number of coughs and colds that some of our babies are susceptible to. We like raising our calves indoors to keep them from being stressed by extreme cold and heat and now we can give them fresh air too!
Our biggest priority is their health and well-being and this is just another tool to help us do that.
We are especially thankful to our veterinarian who helped us design this system and customize it to our barn and for always being an advocate for the health of our future milking herd!
