Spinder cuddle box

Cuddle box for optimum calving

A new-born calf is the future of your livestock and a newly calved cow is the start of a new lactation.

The Spinder Cuddle Box creates the optimum conditions for this important first phase: for the farmer, for the cow and for the calf. Handy, safe, smooth, hygienic and stress-free handling around the entire calving process.

For the development of the Cuddle box, Spinder worked together with Vetvice: a team of veterinarians who strive for maximum welfare and health of animals and humans.


  • The Cuddle box gives a hygienic, dry and draught-free lying place for the new-born calf.
  • The cow can lick her calf, which has a stimulating effect and prevents the calf from cooling down.
  • In the separate calf section, giving colostrum to the calf is a breeze.
  • The calf cannot wander around and can easily be relocated to another pen.

Specifications Cuddle box

The Cuddle box consists of two sections: a cow section and calf section.

  • The calf section consists of light, easy-to-clean and removable plastic panels.
  • The cow stands in a catcher gate with extendable and rotatable side gates, which can be easily closed off by the dairy farmer.
  • Preferably, the cuddle box is placed on the side of the straw-bedded pen.
