The South Dakota poultry house plans described in this circular were designed from a study of plans from other states, trials of houses on the College Poultry Farm, and after the suggestions of former Professor G. L. Stevenson, Clara M. Sutter, Professor W. E. Poley, and O. J. Weisner. The house is designed for the rigorous climate of the north central section of the United States. In the design of this house the cost item has been kept in mind constantly. A better house could be designed and built but not for the reasonable cost of this one. This house is designed for the majority of South Dakota farms and has already been built on a very large number of them. The slightest change in the plan of this house will probably make the inside conditions unsatisfactory in winter.
