Quick-build budget calf shelter

Taylor Built by Redpath Quick-build budget calf rearing shelters are a simple and durable solution to providing a warm natural light environment to raise healthy happy calves. We have supplied hundreds of these shelters nationwide to happy customers.

This design is straightforward to build in 6m width. They are typically erected by local fencing contractors, handyman or owners within a few days usually by two persons (depending on the size).
You can purchase the easy-build calf shelters direct from us and this helps keep them cost effective.

They can be ordered in many different lengths up to 48m (longer buildings quoted upon request). The Quick-build shelter uses no concrete for their foundations and instead using ground ‘screw anchors’ which are included with the building and secure the framework to the ground giving owners a straightforward and speedy assembly process.
Taylor Built by Redpath Quick-build budget calf shelters are designed to be erected by the owner, or local fencing contractors etc.

Heavy duty Duratough 215 micron clear vinyl roofing is used for the roof /sides and ends. Duratough is the thickest grade extruded animal shelter film supplied in New Zealand. Duratough has a quality UV stabiliser giving superior long-life performance. Replacement covers are simple to fit and typically cost less than 10% of the building value.

We manufacture these buildings to order with a lead time of around 30 working days for dispatch. They are supplied in kitset form only, are typically built buy owners or local fencing contractors.
The structure does not include design engineering for council, as they are for semi-permanent or non-permanent use only and are unlikely to endanger people or any other building. They use no permanent fixture for their foundation and no concrete. 

The 6m width shelters are supplied with ‘open ends’ You can then select the following options: 

Option 1: Fit a ‘header rail option’  approximately 1.2m above the ground on one side or two sides. Allows the calves to utilise indoor or outdoor yard space.
Option 2: You can fit a ‘roll up wall blind’ on one side or two sides, This improves ventilation of the shelter for the control of temperature and humidity.
Option 3: Select the type of ‘ends’ required. Choose a ‘door end’ or a ‘closed end’. If you choose no ends the ends will be open.
