A refrigerated-truck box has been given new life as a warming house for newborn calves at one Colorado Dairy. Employees at Galeton Dairy added extra insulation to the walls and ceiling, mounted an electric heater for extra heat when it’s really cold, and covered the entrance with heavy tarps. Deep-straw bedding greets newborns, and wall-mounted containers hold everything employees need to process a newborn calf. The truck box’s chain gate must be kept closed to prevent cows from settling into the warm quarters.
