MATERNITY PENS
Excellent calf care begins with calving. Clean, well-bedded, individual maternity pens are available for any cow or heifer you may be interested in bringing to our facility to calve-in. Our service allows you to take the pressure of yourself and provides a facility if you are tight for room. We are happy to assist with any animal you desire to have a good start.
SUPER HUTCHES
Also renovated, our super hutch area provides a transition area for weaned calves to introduce group housing and ensure proper feed consumption. This area is also an excellent resource for initial housing of clients’ calves entering the Budjon facilities immediately after weaning.

Our services include housing of any IVF or Flush animal. Milking, dry, high type, high genomic or heifers, we are happy to accommodate them all! We are the ONLY TransOva Satellite Center that offers IVF & Flushing Services on a weekly basis – every other Monday or Tuesday.

In partnership with TransOva Genetics, we pride ourselves in our ability to communicate with you, the owner, as to your goals with each animal at our facility. Tom is always available to discuss thoughts and plans for animals’ reproductive programs. In addition to IVF services, TransOva is also available on Monday collections for conventional flush needs.

To ensure reproductive status is always up to date, we also utilize the ultrasound services of Dr. Sandra Curran. Every other Thursday Dr. Curran is on farm to aid in sex determination and reproductive updates ensuring the most complete information is always available to make the best decisions for your animals.
