Rotary Sheds

Barfoote Rotary Cowsheds are designed for the requirements of the high producing dairy farmer, who wants to reduce labour expenditure and time spent in the cowshed. Choose from a range of the  standard portal designs or be a little more adventurous and consider the modern curved concrete arch option which offers increased space.  The buildings are extremely robust  functional and low maintenance.  They remain extremely appealing to the eye, the curves seem to hug the landscape and blend in as though they have always been there.  Not to mention that they are also surprisingly affordable.
