Penn State Housing Plans for Milking and Special-Needs Cows (NRAES 200 - FRONT MATTER ONLY)
Graves, Robert E.
The idea plans assembled in this book were developed to provide educational information on various aspects of freestall housing, special-needs housing, and building- component details. They are intended to be used in conjunction with a design team including experts familiar with dairy facilities, building construction, animal health and care, financial matters, environmental concerns, and farm operations. The needs of the ultimate full-time occupant of the facility—the cow—must always be kept in mind. DUE TO OUSTANDING COPYRIGHT ISSUES OR CLEARLY IDENTIFIED OUT-OF-DATE PRACTICES (E.G. SAFETY CONCERNS), ONLY THE FRONT MATTER (E.G. COVER, ToC, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, ETC) ARE PROVIDED HERE AT THIS TIME.
