Beef Farm Expansion

Type of Building

Cattle Shed

Works Included

The project was to develop an additional cattle shed for a progressive beef farm in Dumfries and Galloway.   They wanted to house as many cattle as possible in a cost-effective manner.   In contrast to the sheds already on the farm with a central feed passage, they decided on an external feed passage and instead of a solid floor throughout for bedding we developed a design that allowed 90% of the shed to be slatted with a slurry tank below and separate solid floor pens for bedded calving cows.
