General Info

Poly Square Big Foot

The Big Foot has all the features of the Poly Square, but it is 12″ longer (7’6′), and comes standard with the rear vent system.

The Big Foot will give you superb growth and healthier lung power needed for proper development into higher producing herds.

As stated in Country Folks, May 8, 1989 by Dr. Howard Larsen, Professor Emeritus Dairy Science Department, University of Wisconsin – “Properly designed, the calf hutch can be an excellent management tool which allows the calf to be comfortable, disease free, and grow to her genetic capacity. Calves will then thrive, not merely survive, and become long-lived, healthy productive animals in the herd.”

The Poly Square Big Foot is constructed of opaque material to eliminate the solar effect. It blocks out the sun’s heat–not sunlight. The Big Foot’s inverted ribs and 5’(w) x 7’6”(l) stance make it extremely wind resistant–with the largest footprint of any unit on the market today. And like the Poly Square it has no pop rivets which means no breaks or cracks for snow and rain to sift in.

The Poly Square Big Foot has the biggest sleeping area of any calf hutch on the market today (38 square feet).

NOTE: The left side feeder is standard. Right side, and rear feed configurations are available.

Metal Door for Calf Nurseries

PolyDome introduces a new metal door and frame. The door is hinged and reversible. It can be used with the sliding insert to block wind and snow.

The door also works as a feeder, holding two 5-quart buckets. The powder-coated steel frame bolts to a Poly Square, Poly Square Big Foot, or Warm Climate Nursery.

The dimensions are 20-inches wide x 36-inches high x 1 inch deep.
