That looks smart. Will you have to lift the slats to muck it out?
Lovely job. How wide is it and how did you support slats in the middle? Are you gonna knock out the walls and put in a feed rail on outside? Would be a super spot for finishing lambs
Super job and no messing lifting slats. Will you run a canopy out over the feed face on the sides to keep the feed dry?Thanks, the pens are 25 foot wide, theres a spine wall up the centre of each tank with a beam at either end, then theres runners going from either wall that the slats sit onto , the outside walls are panels so shouldnt be too hard to lift out, might feed at the ends as well, it will be used for housing lambs to finish and housing ewes from Christmas to march to save grass for lambing, will be a massive saving on straw and no winter grass being taken again
thanks, no feck that lifting slats wanted to make it as easy as possible, not yet anyway probably see how it goes first maybe next year maybe lidded feeders around the edge shed should hold 400 plus ewesSuper job and no messing lifting slats. Will you run a canopy out over the feed face on the sides to keep the feed dry?
We house 350 ewes in 10, 30' x 15'9'' bays. Meal fed in walk through troughs between the bays and silage fed along the front, bedded with a teagle straw chopper, Our shed is open sided therefore the shed would be 160ft×30ft with an 8ft canopy, separate shed used for lambing pens.Looking at putting a new shed up for lambing and was wondering what size would be needed for lambing 350 sheep cheers daz
