Housing for 50-60 cows today



Housing for 50-60 cows today



Genie Rural (1/2): 27-31



The choices facing a farmer choosing buildings for a herd of 50-60 cows are discussed. The author prefers cubicle shed design to loose-housing on straw, although plans are given for both types of building, and for housing with cubicles having direct access to silage or with feed troughs. A 4:4 high-line or 3:3 low-line herringbone parlour is recommended; automatic cluster removal is not considered economic for a herd of this size.
