Beef Housing – What Exactly Are You Looking For?

Posted on March 12, 2014


There are many different kinds of farm buildings that need to be considered by specialists in the field of agriculture and horticulture, and one of the most important of these options would undoubtedly be dedicated beef housing. There are many diverse factors that need to be thoroughly measured when installing proper housing for beef cattle, and the vastly better return that optimised buildings can facilitate is well worth all the extra planning.

An article in Farmer’s Weekly clearly displays the sort of things that conscientious farmers are looking for in their beef housing installations. Correct ventilation is perhaps the issue of paramount importance, as neglecting this can reduce production efficiency and also foster more prevalent health disorders among livestock. However, this is by no means the only factor at stake here, as the whole environment of the building must also be able to promote a calming atmosphere.

Natural light and sufficient space allow livestock to remain stress free, so it is no surprise that the Farmer’s Weekly article outlines this as a key concern. Stress free animals eat more and thus gain weight quicker, so the production return is therefore much greater. For this reason, water must be easily accessible to all animals without the risk of any bullying taking place. When one takes into account additional issues over adequate pen sizes, easy staff access and relevant machinery incorporation, it becomes very clear that the ideal type of animal housing necessitates a delicate balancing act.
