The roof is a 20th century replacement. It has been raised on brick piers on the central wall. A rudimentary pole loft has been formed in the east cattleshed. Door/s; open front. Both east and west elevations were originally open- fronted, but they are now enclosed by corrugated iron. Some timber posts remain to the front of the east shed.

In the east shed there is a long, timber boarded trough on a low stone rubble wall. Timber partitions in the west shed have been made from 18th century bead- moulded doors taken from a domestic context. The stalls in the east shed are tubular steel and concrete. Root chopper.
