Duck Barn

Buschur Equipment Project

Featuring:

  • Flex Auger Feeding System
  • Valco Watering System

Details:

Two identical barns were set up for this customer.

Each barn’s feeding system includes a 15 ton bin with a flex auger bringing feed into the barn. Once inside the barn this auger drops into another perpendicular auger which delivers feed the length of the barn through a series of drop tubes.

The Valco watering system includes a filtration system, medicator, and regulator to control pressure. The watering lines were built in a ladder system to the contractor’s specifications and includes an automatic flush system to keep water fresh.

Southwest Automation also installed a winching system to raise and lower the duck nests to simplify the process of gathering the eggs.

Calf Barn for 250 Calves

Buschur Equipment Project

Featuring:

  • Ventec Chimneys
  • Ventec ISO – Clear Panels
  • J&D Manufacturing LED Lights
  • Valco Flex Auger

Details:

This calf barn is designed to be self ventilating with out the use of fans. The chimneys contain a baffle to help regulate the temperature and air control. The ISO-Clear Panels are double gasketed to create an air gap when closed. The barn is also insulated. All of these together help to keep the barn cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. The barn is setup to be able to raise the pens straight up when calves are weaned on a winching system. Once weaned, the calves feed out of a trough filled with a flex auger and drop tubes.
