This project will gather and share up-to-date information on new techniques and critical points related to the construction of farm buildings and their sustainability. The project will comprise two steps:
Consultants will be invited to share the quality control practices they employ for site supervision. Finally, the best techniques will be selected and explained.
From 2019 to 2021
A new guide for monitoring agricultural building sites will help increase the sustainability of new farm structures.

This project addresses the risks posed by the spreading of manure and emissions released into the environment to the biosecurity of farms, as well as to the health of workers and nearby populations.
The aim of this project was to identify manure management strategies that boost productivity on Québec dairy farms and reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases.
When designing tanks, the total volume of material to be stored must be calculated. This guide provides a comprehensive calculation method that takes into account volumes of bedding added as well as feed and water losses.
