New NRCB operational guideline for portable calf housing

The Natural Resources Conservation Board (NRCB) has updated its approach to the regulation of portable calf housing (hutches) in response to industry and market changes.

Portable calf housing is no longer viewed as short-term manure storage under the Agricultural Operation Practices Act.

More information is available in the NRCB’s new Operational Guideline 2023-1: Portable Calf Housing (Hutches). The NRCB has also updated its Short-Term Solid Manure Storage Requirements fact sheet to reflect this change. 

Please contact your local NRCB field office if you have any questions.
