Most agricultural buildings and structures are similar, but may have different in terms of functionality or technological and geometric characteristics, and may have different space-planning solutions. Usually, they only have one floor and no crane equipment.
In terms of their purpose, agricultural buildings and structures can be divided into several basic types:
- Cattle breeding facilities (cattle housing): cow sheds, calf sheds, calf feeding houses, pig farms, stables and horse farms, sheepfold sheds, and rabbit sheds.
- Poultry facilities: poultry farms, hatcheries for chicken breeding and feeding, duck farms, turkey houses etc.
- Warehousing facilities (for storing various agricultural products): grain warehouses, freezers, and vegetable, seed, and grain storage facilities.
- Auxiliary facilities: veterinary laboratories, isolators and quarantine buildings, veterinary and sanitary facilities, facilities for agricultural equipment repair and maintenance, garages, and workshops.
- Agricultural products processing and handling facilities: feed mills, grain drying complexes as well as vegetable dehydrating and milk processing facilities.
