The aim of this paper was to find out what the system of the technical solution to housing for calf breeding is the most suitable from the point of view of the micro climatic conditions. 3 types of large-capacity calf houses and 6 types of outdoor separate sheds were compared. We focused on comparison of the cooling value that refers to the thermal comfort of animals stabled best. The year-long assessment suggests that the best micro climatic values were recorded in the large-capacity calf house of the steel tilt-up construction.
