Mono-Slope Beef Barn Design and Management

What is a Mono-Slope Beef Barn? It’s a newer style barn for cattle that is becoming increasingly popular in the upper Midwest. Join us for this webinar to discover what exactly a mono-slope barn is and why beef producers are building them. Learn about the basic design of the roof, flooring, walls, curtains, alleys, manure storage and other features. Listen as two cattle producers share how they designed and manage their mono-slope barns. See how they operate the barn curtains to adjust air flow, maintain and bed the pack, handle manure, provide feed, move cattle and comply with state and federal regulations. Both of these producers are currently cooperating in a multi-state USDA grant to determine gas emissions from deep-bedded mono-slope beef barns. Get a sneak preview of the July webinar which will feature this research and the impact of these barns on air quality. More...
