  • Dairy Exhaust Systems

    Sun-North’s main target is to achieve maximum comfort and energy efficiency in all agricultural facilities. Each dairy facility is uniquely different because of its geographical location. Therefore each dairy barn needs a tailored ventilation system to suit all of the weather and temperature variables unique to that dairy's geographical location. Meeting these variables does not necessarily mean an increase in cost or a complicated system.

  • Fresh Air Makeup System

    Fresh Air Makeup System

    Providing fresh air makeup is crucial for a healthy environment for young stock. This is often an ambiguous task in calf barns as drafts can be equally problematic for the health of the calves. An effective solution is to introduce sufficient fresh air from outside using a poly tube with small holes distributed appropriately along the length and around the circumference of the tube which is inflated by a fan. This will jet the air in many locations...

  • Cross Flow Ventilation

    Cross Flow Ventilation

    In regions of the world with extreme heat and low electrical costs, dairy facilities are increasingly becoming wider. These wide facilities use panel/curtain openings on one side and blocks of fans along the opposing side. The panels can be mounted either internally or externally.

  • Dairy Panels

    Livestock productivity and profitability is directly linked to the quality of ventilation within your building. In order to ventilate, you have to insulate. The poorer the insulation within the confinement of a building, the greater the moisture build up and the less productive your livestock will be. Your goal is profitability and it is imperative to reduce moisture and moderate temperature sw

  • Roll-Over Curtain System

The curtain rolls with an easy smooth motion and your...

  • Free Stall Barns

    Free Stall Barns

    Free stall barns are typically split into a separate dry cow barn and the main barn containing the milking herd. The milking herd moves freely from their resting pak along concrete alleys that are scraped or flushed (to remove manure) to the feed bunks. The milking cow is usually tagged to automatically identify her for feed rations and milk productivity. Cows eat freely from the feed bunks which contains a total mix ration (TMR). The herd will be...

  • Tie Stall Barns

    Tie Stall Barns

    Tie Stall barns are still preferred in many areas since it lends itself to more direct contact with each animal, better health care and less aggression between animals. Modern automation with pipeline milking, automatic takeoffs, scrapers and stable cleaners and automatic ration distribution mean labour can be reduced.

  • Heifer Dry Cow Barn

    Heifer Dry Cow Barn

    Dry cows (non milking cows) and heifers that don’t need the same feed rations and attention are normally housed in a separate building. Ventilation requirements are similar to the main dairy barn. A bedding pak without free stalls is an option. Lots of natural light, low humidity and abundant fresh air is a must for maintaining good health.

  • Calf Housing Barn

    Calf Housing Barn

    Calf care is vital to long term herd improvement. To prevent scours and respiratory problems, many dairymen separate the calves one to three days after birth and place them outside in individual calf hutches. Calf hutches can be labour intensive and uncomfortable due to weather.
