Heifer facilities should promote labor efficiency in feeding and handling dairy heifers as well as facilitating safety to those handling heifers. Heifer facilities vary throughout the country depending on temperature and weather. For example, in the Southeast region of the United States, very little housing is offered to heifers because of mild temperatures. But in the Northeast, dairies must provide housing for heifers so they can continue to gain weight during colder winter months. Take into consideration where you’re located and how weather will affect heifer growth.
