Description

What is the function of a dairy housing barn? The answer is simple: to provide sun protection in the summer, and wind and moisture protection in the winter. Modern, naturally ventilated dairy housing barns should be thought of as shelters. Shelters provide relief from the elements, but not total environmental control. Inherently, they are constantly ventilated by the nature of their design. This article is targeted towards smaller dairies that are constructing a new freestall barn.
