In process of building 40x110 calf barn. Barn is set up for 6 pens. Calves will be in huts and super huts till 400 lb. Will be in barn from 400 til bred heifers. There’s other options once they are breeding age. They will be out on pasture around farm or at summer pasture at grandmas. 4 foot concrete walls, galvanized pipe for gate posts. Curtains. What’s the dos and donts? Is the roof liner worth the 6000 extra. Built a new freestall probably 10-15 years ago and they didn’t put liner on barn. Few days a year it rains inside from condensation? I have a quote coming for custom gates that will be galvanized dipped. Have you guys made your own might not be worth it with current steel price. Building has been the the planning for awhile snd we got on the list before prices went crazy and quote was honored. Plus we needed it, just like everything one you do it should of done it 10 years ago? I didn’t get into much detail so fire away. Been trying to keep cows and heifers cool. Just got in from taking care of a dehydrated heifer. Hurt her leg and didn’t want to come off hill, she’s in maternity pen now so it’s looking better. Keep cool and send some rain to se mn.
