Hugh MacEneaney, Teagasc Dairy Adviser, Mullinavat, Co Kilkenny

“Good facilities allow farmers to expand production and incomes and add to the asset value of the farm. They also lead to a better quality of life for the farm family by reducing the workload and the drudgery. In many cases, particularly on dairy farms, buildings pay for themselves over a 7-10 year period. This is especially true when capital grant and tax savings are available.”


 

Good handling facilities

Good handling facilities are essential. Routine handling is necessary for dosing, vaccination, condition scoring, herd testing, etc. An efficient carefully planned handling unit will:

  • Reduce labour requirements
  • Improve working conditions
  • Reduce the risk of injury to both stock and the farmer

 

Handling facilities in or adjacent to buildings make control of effluent and slurry much easier by making cleaning easier and minimising the rainwater falling on soiled areas. A satisfactory layout should include:

  • collecting pen
  • forcing pen
  • race or chute
  • crush
  • holding/dispersal pen
