North cattleshed. Originally, an open-fronted cattleshed on the north side of the yard, built down a slope. The farmer remembers that it stepped down a step, every two cows, for its entire length. It has three rubblestone walls, and now has a rendered concrete block front, which dates from the 1940's. Rendered; rubble stone, brick / concrete block repairs. Concrete block infills the open front. Corrugated iron roof. Tie beam truss. 5-bay roof of tie -beam trusses with king posts (no struts). The purlins and the ridge are replacements for the corrugated iron covering. Door/s; metal framed windows/s; timber window/s. There is an original doorway in the east end, which leads to the feeding passage. At the west end, there is another door, which is relatively narrow. The farmer remembers that it was used for mucking out. However, there are stubs of timber projecting from the wall below as if supporting a platform for churns. The 20th century infill has three metal top-tilting windows and two doors. The rear wall has 3 narrow ventilators in the centre 3-bays. Concrete stalls; feeding passage. Interior fitted out in the 1940's, with concrete stalls and partitions, some of which remain in front of the feeding passage. Currently disused; other. Partly disused and partly used as a kennel.
