A large gambrel barn with a hey mow used to sit where this new barn was constructed. Once the old barn was taken down to the foundation the new PREMB (Pre-Engineered Metal Building) was erected. Cow comfort combined with ease of bedding and cleaning was the driving factor in the design of this project. After many years of working with heifers in low ceiling, drafty, old barns, the owner now has the privilege in housing his animals in this new facility. The 37,000sqft building is enclosed by a curtain system that allows for controlled ventilation. Attached to the main building is an additional 4,800sqft of roof that covers a manure pit.
Completely galvanized steel building designed to house young heifers. The roof is a 26ga steel with a dripstop barrier that is adhered to the back of the sheeting. The barn has over 17,000 square feet of housing and has a 65,000 gal covered manure storage pit. The barn was designed to attach to an existing bank barn so that the cow traffic can flow smoothly.
