Excerpt from Farm Buildings: New and Enlarged Edition, a Compilation of Plans for General Farm Barns, Cattle Barns, Dairy Barns, Horse Barns, Sheep Folds, Swine Pens, Poultry Houses, Silos, Feeding Racks, Farm Gates, Sheds, Portable Fences, Concrete Construction, Handy Devices, Etc

This is not a book of proposed plans for farm buildings, but for the most part is a presentation of actual construction by practical men. It is in the main a compilation of the best plans contributed to The Breeder's Gazette by the farmers and stockmen of the United States in recent years. Many different types are illustrated. Different farms, different latitudes and different methods of management demand an infinite variation in the style, dimensions and detail of American farm buildings.

In barn building as in the planning of the farm home, nearly every individual has his own peculiar ideas and tastes. It is rarely that one is entirely satisfied with what a neighbor has done in such matters. At the same time it is clear that many general propositions and many matters of detail possessing real value to a prospective builder may be gleaned from a study of what successful farmers in different parts of the country have already carried out.

In the belief that many helpful hints will be found in these pages and to fill a persistent demand for information upon the subject treated the publishers present this new and enlarged edition of "Farm Buildings" with full confidence that it will meet with general appreciation.
