My barn is a natural dirt floor, so I sweep up the goat droppings twice a day. On the turkey coop side of the barn, I don’t do a thick layer of pine shavings, just a dusting of them topped with some hay the goats waste to help catch the immense amount of turkey poo. I sweep all the shavings, hay, and droppings up in the coop three times a weeks.
The barn we had built last year we have stall mats down everywhere, even the barn aisle and gravel underneath. This time of year only 6 young does live in the back half of it and we sweep it out 2x a day vs using shavings - this has helped keep the flies from being horrible in there and also saves $$ on shavings. The girls tend to go outside to pee. When we did this in our buck shelter or old barn and had stall mats, the boys would not pee inside unless it was raining. The girls are more careless though lol! But the pee soaks into the mats very quickly.
In the winter when we had moms and babies we'd use shavings, spot clean really wet areas 1-2x a day and strip it out about once a week. When does are in stalls with kids we spot clean 1x a day and strip it out more often/as needed.
Our old barn is dirt floor since we pulled up all the mats and we clean as needed which isn't very often. We quit putting bedding in there because they would push it to a corner to get to the dirt where they proceed to dig up the floor (ugh). So we'll be redoing that barn this fall and doing stall mats lol.
Oh, I meant to say that, too. Nice barn!
I love that you have a barn cam. We have one too and I watch it way too often. So nice though to peek in on them in the middle of the night without having to go outside.
