Building Design & Layout Farming Note

The building design and layout on your farm can have a massive effect on the productivity, health and well-being of your herd. Where facilities are not ideal, cow stress will increase culling rates and decrease milk yields. Many farms' housing facilities have not kept pace with larger, higher yielding cows. When you are redesigning part of or all of your set-up, following target dimensions will help avoid costly building mistakes.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Key building dimensions when designing a new build
  • Building modifications which can be made to existing set-ups
  • Example shed layouts

Issued June 2008.
