Abstract

7. The cowsheds in Denmark are very similar in design to the more modern cowsheds in this country. They are, however, in general structurally superior to the average English cowshed and even to the Dutch cowsheds. In Denmark the flooring, standings, mangers, water supply, electric lighting, drainage from the cowsheds and devices for securing the cows are similar to what we observed in Nederland and equally satisfactory, but the Danish cowsheds were superior in respect of air space, windows and ventilation. In all the cowsheds which we visited the ceilings were high, the air space was ample, lighting by means of windows was good and adequate, cross ventilation was invariably provided. The gutters in Danish sheds are, however, much shallower than those in Dutch sheds, and are consequently not so effective, though movement of the cows is easier and safer.
