建筑物焦点:新型5架吊架刀片,用于扩展牛肉整理企业

In this week’s Buildings Focus,Agriland.在Co. Tripperary的Thurles之外乘坐博罗斯之旅,查看新的拨款规范五架纸板。

在Pierce Ryan农场的新棚子在去年11月刚刚完成,及时冬季住房。

Pierce, who runs his own Agri Consultancy business in Thurles, runs a store to beef enterprise, which sees him buy in Hereford, Angus and Friesian steers in around 450kg and finish them at 28-30 months-of-age.

The farm, which is in one block consisting of 100ha, had been understocked, but over the last few years Pierce has increased the farm’s stocking rate and this was one of the reasons for building the new shed – in order to have enough winter accommodation.

He has experimented with a couple of different systems over the last few years but he has now settled on the system he has in place now which he says is “easy to run, not time-consuming and simple”.

谈到Agriland., Pierce said: “I was undecided for two or three years about whether or not to build a new housing facility.

“我已经拥有了三个纸上的牛,但是我觉得赠款是那里,事实上有一个大块地面,当时我被吸引地跑了牛,我说我说’d go for it and build a new slatted shed.

With the new shed I can house a further 50-60 cattle. I winter house about 250 head and buy a further 50 or so in the spring to run on grass, with the plan of finishing 300 cattle by the autumn time.

“该系统很简单,我在秋天晚些时候在商店购买,他们基本上留在农场一个冬天,并在春季结束之前从草地上留在草地上,直到他们在秋天结束。”

Site and layout

Pierce描述了新棚屋建造在憔悴的地点,主要用作青贮包的存储区域。

The site where the shed is located required a good bit of fill, which was probably one of the only costs Pierce underestimated.

挖掘出现场的挖掘开始于去年8月,锯切COLM年轻进来并挖掘坦克。挖出坦克时没有发生真正的问题。

Fogarty Concrete then came in after and put in the 16ft six slatted tank, while the shed itself was sourced and erected by O’Dywer Steel.

新单位由Aidan Kelly从Agri设计和计划服务设计。

在更详细地看设计,五架棚屋在顶点处高6.84米。它是24米长,6.735米宽,其中包括棚屋后部的混凝土槽。棚屋的混凝土墙2.4m。棚屋高4.81米到前夕排水沟。

五件钢笔长4.8米,宽6.53米。然而,罐子长27.1亿,宽5.03米,深2.75米。两个搅拌点位于罐的任一端。

4.81米宽的喂食通道位于构建的前部,在饲料面上突出2.45米的冠层。

Features of the unit

这是一个简单的系统的简单设计。棚屋有能力放松举行50-55牛;虽然,它可以处理更多,这就是皮尔斯已经完成的。

There are about 10-12 cattle in each pen, depending on size, there is only 10 in some of the pens carrying heavier bullocks, while there are 12 in some which contain slightly lighter cattle.

The only reason Pierce can push that higher stocking rate in each pen is because of the inclusion of the concrete feeding trough which goes the length of the unit.

The steers in the shed are fed silage and meal. Pierce said that when it comes to feeding meal, six can eat at the front feed face, while the other six cattle in the pen can eat at the back of the pen where the concrete trough is.

该单位的整个内部由农业救济服务试图,所有的盖茨,饲料障碍和水槽都来自公寓工程。两个盖茨分开了每个钢笔。皮尔斯说这是为了处理猎头的方式处理牛。

He said: “The system I operate, it means there isn’t an awful amount that has to be done with the age of bullocks I keep like there would be with weanlings say.

If I have to dose them or anything like that, I can let them in one end of the shed and they can make their way down to the far end of the shed.

“我星期一到星期五九到五,所以如果必须用牛完成一些事情,我需要尽可能快速有效地做 - 特别是因为有些日子,我经常不得不和我一起工作。“

The way sheds are designed and built nowadays, the emphasis placed on ventilation is of utmost importance.

There’s a nice balance between it being airy and warm. Vented sheeting was placed at the back of the shed, while a 450mm gap was left between the vent sheeting and the roof to further assist airflow.

As well as that, the hanging steel barriers at the back of the shed can be opened or closed and offer another entry and escape route for air.

These barriers are generally left open most of the time in order to feed the cattle meal along the concrete trough.

The high pitched-roof also helps to keep the shed nice and airy and prevent it from becoming too warm and stuffy.

饲料面上的屋顶悬垂有助于防止雨水进入棚子,并有助于保持青贮干燥。屋顶悬垂略低于屋顶的顶点,以满足格兰特规范,但它还为空气提供了另一个空气进入和离开装置。

Skylights were also incorporated into the design to brighten up the shed, while LED lights were also installed. Two yard lights were also placed at either end of the shed.

Feeding meal over putting in mats

在过去的几年里,皮尔斯已经在农场上升级了现有的住房设施,其中一些升级包括垫子。

然而,与其他棚子不同,新棚不会看到任何垫子;皮尔斯,看到了第一手他们可以带到桌子上的东西。他认为,在冬天喂养他的牛一餐比为垫子付钱更好。

他补充说:“我曾经在冬天喂青贮饲料,然后在草地上出去时喂一顿饭。

我觉得在冬天之后,公布的棚子出现了一点目标,所以我决定在冬天喂他们坚果,而不是青贮饲料,而不是Siasage。

“你现在不相信他们的差异。之前,当他们会在冬天卖完后,它会带他们两个月的时间来才能走,而现在,当他们在岔路口中击中草地时,他们就会从康乐结算上茁壮成长。

“基本上,我觉得我的钱更好地花了一顿饭,而不是花钱在垫子上花钱。我不觉得他们需要他们说实话。我们没有任何蹩脚的问题并诚实地遇到问题,他们似乎非常满足于裸板条。

“If I was finishing bulls I would say different because I feel you need to have mats under them but with the bullocks I keep, they aren’t obviously as heavy as bulls and they seem to be doing nicely getting a bit of meal and good silage.”

成本

Pierce was able to avail of the Targeted Agricultural Modernisation Scheme (TAMS II).

包括增值税的棚屋的总成本为86,000欧元。赠款价值约25,000欧元。因此,能够回收增值税和利用40%的补助金,棚屋站在距离50,000欧元以上的皮尔斯。

仔细考虑他决定继续建立新的单位,皮尔斯说:“我很高兴我继续前进并做到了。

“我会后悔没有把它沿着这条线。通过我在这里到达的系统以及我的工作离开农场,这对我来说并不是那么大的风险和建造一个新的棚屋。

I know beef isn’t in a great place and hasn’t been for quite awhile but I wouldn’t have gone ahead and done it if I knew I couldn’t make it back.

“我相当衡量的事实也是一个大因素,甚至现在我可以在另一个钻头上推出数字,但现在我很高兴我在哪里。”
