Adil Akyuz, Yunus Ozturk and Atilgan Atilgan

Abstract:
Meat and milk production, which is the main source of human nutritions, can be significantly increased provided that animals are accommodated in barns designed based on the project criteria. Factors such as climate, construction system, construction materials and breeding types should be considered in planning animal barns. In this study, present situation of barns of beef and dairy cattle enterprises in the Van region, where most of people gain their income from animal farming, was determined and the possibilities to improve these barns were investigated. Also appropriate barn design criteria suitable to climatical conditions of the region was determined and was found that long side of the barns should be positioned in the north-south direction for natural aeration, which is one of the most significant environmental factors, of the barns.
