New Floor in the Milk Bar

   We decided to get a few truckloads of what is called rock screenings for our new milking barn floor. It makes for a great floor that is really absorbent, doesn't mold or stay damp and packs down hard enough to actually just sweep off. Here are a few pics of the rock screenings being delivered and then flattened out by my crew and me.

  1. I can see your cat is doing some inspection. He wants to know if you are doing a good job on the barn! Haha. Kidding aside, it is good that you used rock crushed screenings for the raised base of the barn. It is less expensive than other types of aggregate. It is also easy to rake, and it packs down firmly. Another good thing about using rock screening is that it doesn’t affect the soil nutrients so you can still grow plants and veggies on the area if you ever decide to tear down the barn for a vegetation lot.
