Experiments indicate that any shelter which keeps the cows dry nnd away, from drafts is as satisfactory as a closed barn. Open sheds have the advantage of cutting down the amount oE labor required to keep the bam 1 clean. In addition, the cows can 'get a larger amount of sunlight. Johnston recommends that a hay rack be installed in the shed to allow · free access to a legume hay.
