Multi-Use, Affordable and Right-Sized for Smaller Herds
Get your cattle out of the mud and protected from the elements for improved feed efficiency and profit potential. The Summit 160-Head Barn is the perfect facility to begin feeding fat cattle indoors without breaking the bank. In addition, no regulatory permitting is required for up to 299-head barns in most areas. Some local or zoning laws may apply. Check out the floor plans below.
What are the advantages of a Summit 160-Head Barn?
Indoor feeding: Ideal for herds of 50, 80, 100, 120 or up to 160 fat cattle.
Calve indoors: Save time, labor and the lives of your valuable calves by moving your spring calving into your monoslope.
Cow-calf housing: Feed your beef cows inside. Many producers use monoslope beef barns to house or partly house their beef cow herd.
Storage: When the barn is not full of cattle, you can store machinery, hay, bedding bails or anything you want there to protect it from the weather.
Expandability: Your beef barn package can be designed to expand as your beef production capabilities grow through the years. Typical facilities are sized to provide feeding facilities for herds of 50 to 160 fat cattle.
Three floor plan options: Our three sample building floor plans show layouts with and without manure storage, and all of them offer year-round cattle comfort and health for optimum feed efficiency and rate of gain.
160 Select: An economical option for getting your cattle out of the mud and under roof. The “Select” barn includes two pens, a feed bunk, drinker and minimal concrete. This barn offers optimal sunlight benefits and ventilation at minimal cost for maximum cattle health and feed efficiency.
160 Choice: The “Choice” barn is designed to provide the benefits of the “Select” barn with the added benefit of poured concrete walls for longevity and concrete in the feed lane for reduced maintenance.
160 Prime: The “Prime” barn was designed with a manure bay and full concrete floor. Included are all the benefits of the “Choice” barn and it also meets the Illinois Department of Agriculture 60-day manure requirements for 160 head – a great option for Illinois producers!
