An up-to-date edition of the agricultural buildings reference for farmers and estate managers is to be published by the UK-based Rural and Industrial Design and Building Association, according to a press release by the association.

The Farm Buildings Handbook is also aimed at contractors and designers who may not have an in-depth knowledge of the particular requirements of agricultural construction such as how much space to allow livestock and how much waste stock produces.


RIDBA is set to re-launch the handbook at the Agricultural Building Show on April 7, 2009.
