Chad is a third generation cattle farmer. Before buying a Remuda building, he was calving cows in an old hip roof barn that dated back to when his grandfather moved to the farm in 1937.
The old barn was cold and drafty, and the only way to clean it out was to spend a whole day using pitchforks.
After some cold winters, and feeling squeezed for space, Chad approached Remuda about designing a building that would be purpose-built as a calving barn. There’s a separate room for pulling and feeding calves, a viewing room upstairs where Chad can watch cows calve without disturbing them, and infrared and overhead heaters to keep everyone warm. Plus, the new building can be cleaned out with a tractor and a skid steer in just one hour.
In addition to making calving season easier and more comfortable, the building doubles as a shop space where Chad can keep tractors, equipment, and vehicles stored safely year-round.
“We’ve had this Remuda building for three seasons now. We love it. There was a lot of thought that went into the design and our rep worked with me on that. I had a vision of what I wanted. The right size, the amount of pens, and our maternity room. Halfway through the build, I decided to add another overhead door and new cattle shelters. They made it work.”
