A new version of the Report The Design of Dairy Cow and Replacement Heifer Housing was published, prepared by the Working Group n. 14 Cattle Housing, a group of experts from different countries operating within the 2nd section of CIGR (Commission Internationale du Génie Rural). This is the revision of a similar report, published in 1994, which in addition to updating the previous document presents a significant expansion and deepening of the topics, covering the needs of all the activities taking place in the areas of housing. In its 60 pages the technical recommendations regarding the design and management of stables for dairy cows and replacement heifers are described; in particular precise details about the size of the interior spaces, the design of equipment and facilities, the climatisation, the organization of the areas for special purposes are given. It is thus a comprehensive and detailed guide for a correct approach to the design and management of houses for dairy herds.
