Genesis Enterprises has developed a front door for all makes of calf hutches that provides extra protection from the elements. This weathershield has been on the market for 5 years with many satisfied customers. The cover is made of clear, heavy vinyl with a galvanized tubing frame. It installs on any make of hutch and allows sunlight and heat in as it is a clear window. They can also be used in sandstorms and can be used all year long to protect fresh bedding prior to a calf occupying the hutch.
During the World Dairy Expo in October of 2012 we were able to hear from customers who bought them 5 years ago and how well they liked them and how well they were holding up. Other do it yourself solutions include propping a haybale or plywood in the doorway. The Genesis cover lets in more light and heat than plywood and is a whole lot lighter than a bale of hay.
Genesis has sold the cover directly in the past and is establishing a dealer and distribution network.
