Mine automatically open and close, provided I shout at a child loudly enough to pull the rope 👍
Yes, I feel I have enough to do and the children are men now and currently working away from
Home the dog can manage and shouting at the wife never ends that well .... 😂 I don’t mind investing if they are good which they look it but I’d like some one with experience of them to confirm they are as good as they look or .....

I've worked on three farms with them. They've really been excellent for keeping a good atmosphere in the sheds; walk in on a sleety windy day and they're shut right up, sleet stops in an hour and they're opened up again, stock and bedding much happier as its dry yet well ventilated (rinse and repeat for different weather types, never seen them caught out). Can't comment on reliability but they didn't break in the 6 months I worked at each farm!

I guess its all down to cost. I'm sure it could be DIY'd if you were handy with the electronics and software side of things...

Thanks ! I’m very tempted and you have confirmed my thoughts about keeping the shed right inside .

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
