Aaron Harpster, a partner in Evergreen Farms in Spruce Creek, Pa., used pavement to create 25-foot wide lanes to set his calf hutches on. The width allows the dairy operation to set the hutches to one side and have a road lane for worker and equipment access. When the dairy moves calves to wean them, it pulls the hutch off the pad and the pavement is cleaned with a skid loader. Then, the area sits empty for a few weeks prior to putting a calf hutch back on with a new calf. “These lanes create a better work environment for our people and we can still keep the calves in individual hutches,” says Harpster.
