£51 a meter here for 35 Newtown
why is concrete so much cheaper in Ireland
Probably because there is 6 or 7 different companies trying to undercut each other within ten miles
I don't think you have aggregate tax?
Ah sorry, that is bloody cheap then.
Thanks Cozzie, so would i get 120 cattle in a shed for €60k? Tell me more about these birds... Is it because it open?
What would this type of shed cost me. Keep it cheap.... with 60% grant from Department. Holding 120 cattle, 6 bays long feeding 10 cattle at front and back. Tank width 30 ft. 15 ft slats.
I'm guessing it'll cost you 40%
It just always has been, roof sheets and steel etc is dearer though
Good one jamesy....... 40% of 100k, 80k, 60k....
Your shed design is not great , you need more storage and a wider tank is cheaper to build , the best working shed which is also the most economical to build is a double slat tank both sides with a passage down the middle , two 12'6 slats each side with a concrete strip 18" wide both sides of the slats , this is a grant spec design , the sizes you mentioned are not grant spec. This type of shed 6 bays long gives you 3 double pens both sides of the passage .this will hold 35 fat cattle / pen.
Would this one be better James ds?
Why not make one big tank under the feed passage too. You pay for it one and will never regret it.
That will work perfect , but will be expensive / hd to build , that is a very wide slat , they are available but are very dear , it will be cheaper to build a double tank with 2 11'6 slats with a wall down the middle , this will also be easier to agitate , you don't need all that feed space for the amount of stock that she'd will hold , if you widen your slatted area by 7 ft and shorten the shed by 2 bays it will hold the same amount of stock for a lot less money .long and narrow is expensive.
Or long and narrow but open fronted
How many 650kg cows can you fit and 15 foot slats that are 100 foot long?
70 I'd have on it at least
what about something like this?
we built this 5 years ago and has worked well. the occasional really windy wet night the cattle are a wee bit miserable but otherwise has been a very easy to manage building
100ft long with two 13ft slats divided into 10 pens. We normally house 120 stores (450kg) and finish them on the slats to about 600kg so each pen holding about 7000kg of cattle
cost about £80,000 all done then we had a bit of a grant on it so has probably paid for itself now.
A lot we empty a shed that has over 800 cows in it all on slats with feed passage in the middle
