What we need to add on to our existing barn for a milking area in rainy weather. barn with open-air loafing area. I like this because it blocks a lot of wind from entering the shelter in the winter. This would work great as night shelter for goats.
Goat resting benches within shelters (and pallets covered with plywood within their yard) provide resting areas up off the cold damp ground. The elevated platforms keep goats clean & dry and makes them feel safe
I like this barn with a chicken run attached. I imagine having stalls and pens with runout for fiber animals and birds, and milking parlor. Maybe one larger stall for cow/other livestock which connects to the larger pastures.
