Open barn

Efficient beef bull farming

In beef bull farming, the use of open barns with fully slotted floors is widespread. For economical and achievement-oriented production the following points are important:
• Correct density level and group size
• Animal to feeding place ratio 2:1
• Group size not more than 16 – 18 animals
• Supply feeding
• Pen size in this system must be aligned to the terminal weight
• Allow for safe herding facilities: An 80 cm wide alley behind the pens which can also be used as inspection walkway has proven effective
• Pen dividers: sturdy 4 or 5 bar panels
• Drinking troughs: built into dividers for protection
