Repurposing This Ol' Barn For Small Ruminants

Repurposing This Ol' Barn For Small Ruminants

Many farms and properties that people inherit or purchase come with existing structures that can be used for livestock. This free webinar shares how to evaluate these barns for small ruminant use, particularly old dairy barns. When starting out raising livestock, the easiest and least expensive housing is the housing already on the property. For many, this means the use of facilities previously used to house dairy cows. Many of these older buildings are not well ventilated and may need upgrades to make them suitable places for keeping sheep and goats.
