And what about the light? I wouldn’t call it a barn!


Right, no light. But I don't see any air inlet either. There seems to be an open ridge as outlet, but where does the air come in?


terrible barn, no happy cows inside. Work to do for cow ambassador Joep Driessen!!


no air, no light, no space
1st think to do, it's to cut the "wall"

Poor farmer, who did such a bad barn design? What a waste. He really has alot to do to rectify the problem especially in terms of head space and air circulation
