Title: Stall layout/ where to hang fans?
Post by: Snickers#48 on April 24, 2019, 03:51:13 PM
Hi,
I was wondering what everyone's stall layouts look like. I have three 24" Sullivan turbo fans and wanted to know where to hang them and what kind of stands/ brackets that y'all like to use? This would only be for one steer.
I also wanted to know how to keep the shavings from blowing away. I am using 1 fan right now and am using medium cedar shavings, but a lot of them blow away.
Thanks so much!!

Jacob, thanks so much for the response!
I am just wondering where to hang the fans at home for best air circulation and cooling. Also how wet do you get the bedding?

Take a look at about 1:20 of this video of Mikala Grady and her barn.  They have a real cool drop down wall of butt fans and that can be pulled up out of the way on a pulley system.
