ClearSpan Dairy Barns and Milking Barns Increase Operational Efficiency And Profits

ClearSpan dairy barns are designed to protect and improve the profitability of dairy cattle. A clear span dairy building creates an ideal environment for raising livestock or for use as milking barns. Truss Arch Specialists at ClearSpan help customers design the structure that is ideal for their dairy operation. No specification or building requirement is too small, so integrating a ClearSpan building into an existing operation is an easy and quick process. 

Choosing a ClearSpan dairy barn or milk barn is an easy option, because these structures help dairy operations across the country save money year-round. The natural daytime lighting and climate-sensitive covers allow owners to cut monthly costs, while also keeping cattle comfortable. These dairy buildings also utilize a clear span building profile. The designs don’t require support posts, so each building has the maximum amount of usable space with a floor plan that can be laid out in the most convenient manner. 

The ClearSpan Dairy Building Advantage includes: 

  • Comfortable atmospheres that cattle love
  • Supports profitable livestock 
  • Clean, dry & easy to maintain

This enables ClearSpan’s Truss Arch Specialists to get customers the buildings they need quickly, while also creating their ideal structural solution. These dairy barns can also be multi-functional. While one structure may be primarily used as a milking barn, it can also function as housing, storage, work space and more.

Burnt Chimney Dairy Farm in Burnt Chimney, Virginia is a business that emphasizes the importance of comfort for their cows and strives to provide clean, spacious areas with dry bedding and plenty of ventilation Read More

Co-manager Daniel Gish decided on two ClearSpan Hercules Truss Arch Buildings to provide this type of environment for the farm’s cows.

Gish chose ClearSpan structures due to the low cost, easy construction and versatility of the buildings. “It was about a third of the cost of a stall barn and half the cost of a stick-built structure,” said Gish.

“We love the customizable features. We had the ability to choose the foundation, so we went with bridge timbers. We also decided to install large fans for ventilation and this has alleviated our summer heat problems for both the workers and the cows,” Gish explained. “The cows seem to really be enjoying themselves even when it’s hot and humid,” he added.

Another advantage that Gish appreciates about the structures is the versatility. He explained, “We can fence part of the building off and use it for storage for everything from equipment to hay. We also use part of it for composting.”

The natural light and ventilation of ClearSpan structures create a healthier, cleaner and drier environment that the cows can truly thrive in. Completely satisfied with his buildings, Gish stated, “ClearSpan was a great addition for us!”
