Dairy Housing

Dairy Applications











Cow comfort (milk production) is not what a human perceives as comfortable. Building design does not have to be expensive. Moderating temperature swings and keeping humidity levels under control is key.

Natural ventilation by using different forms of side panels and ridge ventilation/lite has become the international standard for dairymen around the world. Your dairy can be a tie stall barn 10 m wide ,a free stall barn 40 m wide or a calf barn 8 m wide. Sun-North will design a specific system for your eco climate.
