Herringbone Dairy Shed

Location:
Hawea Flat, Central Otago

Converting several thousand hectares of Hawea Flat dryland farm to dairy pasture outside Fonterra’s local district meant our client, Devon Dairies, would be hauling the milk themselves. They needed modern milking units that integrated seamlessly into their whole operation.

To meet this challenge we custom designed and built both a 40-a-side herringbone dairy shed along with another 54-bale rotary shed unit (not pictured). Combined, these projects allowed Devon Dairies to be competitive and very productive, despite their relatively remote location.

This project showcases our expertise in purpose-designing and building highly practical rural buildings to meet farmers’ unique requirements.
