shed costs for beef cattle


Yes, all internals, full concrete floor and galvanised throughout. Centre passage reinforced concrete.
Rightly or wrongly current quote is for 18’ to eaves ....... just in case beef doesn’t continue to stack up in the future.
Size is 90x75

That’s not expensive then, bang on what I’ve budgeted actually when initially looking. Though I’m now putting a tank underneath so will be considerably more but maybe not per head.


We have about 85/90 8 month olds in one half of a 120 x 50 .they feed of both sides but their tight to all fit.they'll get the full run of the shed once I thin down the previous years fat stock.

Just had a quote to extend the same shed by another 60ft came to roughly £30k

how much would a loose house shed cost to house 140/150 cattle?
what sort of size is needed?
We can put that number in our 1970s shed if full. Centre pass. Roughly 155x 70. Think pass is roughly 13 foot.

Just built another gp and cattle shed. Decided to feed along open side however we are getting too much rain coming in in wild weather. Going to put a leanto on to cover feed pass and stop rain. We need this for when grain is in shed.

Are you on TMR ad-lib?
Wouldn’t have thought 120’ was enough trough space for 80 head of that weight to feed at once.
Just put 2 tonne of feed out for these. 600-670kg, 80 cattle. We have enough trough space to put nearly 2 days feed but we'd rather feed daily.

Speaking from experience, the colour, and therefore hair length, of most of those cattle means you can be a bit stingier on space/straw. Get a big angus bullock and the bugger will find a dirty corner to lie in, no matter what you do.
