Frequently Asked Questions on Free Stall Dairy Equipment
Free Stalls from FarmTek will make your cows happy and comfortable, while providing the strength and durability you require to keep your barn functioning at its best. We offer Free Stall Systems not only for lactating dairy cows, but also for cattle operations of any type and size. We can also design structures based on breed-specific sizing requirements, not a generic layout based solely on what is most popular. Each barn we work with is designed with stalls to fit your needs, whether it is a brand new facility or a retrofit in an existing barn. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions from FarmTek customers looking to design a Free Stall System for their cattle operation.
What size loops do you have?
We offer free stall loops in different dimensions based on a customer’s requirements. If you have small Jersey heifers or large Angus cows, we can get you the size stall that is appropriate for your application. We custom manufacture these stalls to order, so if there is something special that you need, just ask. You can contact a dairy specialist at extension 1268.
What happens to the corrosion protection when these pieces are welded together?
Most of our equipment can be bolted together; it is not necessary to weld. However, if a customer decides that they want to weld this product together, we offer a coating that you can spray on afterwards if you burn off the galvanization.
Are your parts compatible with other manufacturers’ parts?
Most of the time, yes, if we can get the outside dimensions on your particular equipment. If you are looking for replacement clamps or parts, we will try to get you what you need. If not, we can make recommendations on where to go for it. Most of the time, our stall clamps do work with other manufacturers’ parts and some farmers actually prefer our clamps because of their safety features.
Do you offer other dairy housing solutions besides free stalls?
Yes. We have tie-stalls, pack barns, calf barns and more. For the most part, any facility that you would need we can provide for you.
Is there a minimum order size?
No. If you want to try out a couple stalls, you can do that. We can work with you to customize anything you need.
