My family has recently built a show/calving barn.  We are still working on getting it done.  Here are a few pics of the pen system that we have installed.

Continuation of previous post with Pen Pictures.

When we built the barn we wanted to create as much airflow as possible.  The barn is 88'x 30' with a 20'x20' bump-out for a heated washrack and grooming area.  We placed 4 - 4'x8' sliding windows on the West side of the barn.  The main door is a 10'x12' overhead door on the South side.  Sliding door that is 12'x12' on the North side.  There are 8 10'x14' pens with Ritchie automatic waterers splitting the pens.  4' walkthrough gates on each pen with a 10' swing gate that opens to the outside releasing the calves into the runs.  All the pens are on the East side of barn leaving the West side of barn as an isle to feed, clean, drive machinery through etc...  I posted a few pics of the barn.  Let me know what you think.

I have not completed the washrack yet.  The pens are done and are in use.  I will try to take a few pics and post in the next few days.

Good idea i asked show times magazine to write an article about this in one of their issues.  I'd like to see examples of show barns and what works and doesn't work.  I'm in the planning stage of building one for our program and spending a lot of time researching for designs and ideas.  Frustrating cuz not a hole lot out there.

Looking at building a 40 x 40 to house a couple 4h calves and some equipment. Do you guys recommend enclosing the barn or leaving one side open? I was wanting to add a lean to on one side also to work cattle under. All opinions and suggestions are welcome.
