Original buildings are still up! … However, they were assigned to new occupations (guesthouse, farm shop) far from what the builders might have thought!
Outside of the quadrangular farmyard, new breeding facilities were built in order to meet current agricultural standards and constraints:
• cattle herd larger than before;
• mechanized feeding and cleaning works in stables;
• animal welfare: a loose-housing system provides more comfort to cattle and allows him to reproduce natural behaviors in stalls (e.g. dams caring for their offspring, between-individuals interaction like licking, …);
• storage of manure in a dedicated place.
