ALBURN, Ala. - I'orlahle calf
pens -providing ( lean, individual
outdoor room service and a change
of scenery every week- have been
developed here as a means of com

nation's future milk-producers.

periodically have pn v nted most
of the sickness which bedevils
calves in the important first lew
months of life.
I p to now, they say, one in
every five heifer calves born in
the I nited States dies in baby
hood due to diarrhetle condi
tions, pneumonia, stomach and
intestinal worms, and a parasitic
disease called "eoccidiosis" which
involves the intestinal wall.
This high death rule, they say,
has been due to the fact that in
many cases, calves have been
turned loose in large pens with
other calves and adult animals
and have been exposed to con
tamination by diseas'c-laden waste

a few disease-causing agents from
its mother's milk or from contact
with the udder.
Thus, they say, if a calf re

subject to further contamination
from such organisms through
contact with its own waste body
products. The idea of "moving"

on a tip he got from his mother
during his boyhood in Georgia.
"Mother used to keep baby
chicks in a portable wire enclos
ure which she'd move from time
to time, to 'give the chicks a
change of grass' as she put it,"
Davis said. "It turned out that
these chicks were healthier than
some that remained in one spot.
Mother didn't know anything
about coccidiosis, which affects
poultry as well as calves, but
apparently her portable system
was preventing that disease
among her chicks.
