Marjo Posio wrote this article to describe the main differences in raising calves in individual pens housing and successfully raising calves in a group pen housing system. Creating small groups of calves with a small age range between youngest and oldest calves is critical to the calf’s health.  A trained person that can recognize sick calves is needed to provide a healthy environment for all calves. Excellent management skills and design of a good ventilation system as well as creating a minimal stress environment for calves during this time of their life is key to a healthy calf.
