The £3 million transformation of the stud – which provides a bull hire scheme for crofters – has seen its outdated farm buildings demolished and replaced with a new office, quarantine building, main bull housing building, GP building and silage clamp.
While its primary role is to provide a home for up to 150 bulls, the Knocknagael stud also ticks a lot of environmental boxes – it features a bat roost, bird boxes and biosecurity hedging, alongside an air source heating system, solar thermal and solar PV panels.
The Robinsons’ team worked to erect the bullpen buildings, a general-purpose building, a quarantine area, and offices as well as install the internal bullpens and gates.
