    1. The sheet and the cover
    2. The upstand flashing and the cover


    This allows the air to flow out without restricting it. A lot of the ridges are fitted incorrectly the gaps around the cover are far to small but from the ground you can't tell.

    The ridge upstands are fitted to aid the ventilation they help create a draw, like a chimney.

    Looking at your pics dinderleat with the sheds becoming multi span getting air into the shed next to the existing may be your issue.

    I do reports on ventilation in new sheds, giving advice on air inlets and outlets. Also I do reports on ventilation problems in existing poorly ventilated sheds.
    The cost to put the ventilation correct normally pays for itself in a couple of years, it often only cost 10 per foot to alter the building, In some cases just a few hours work can help greatly. Have a look at my website for further information on ventilation


    This below ridge is not recommended on any cattle shed.

    This style of ventilated cranked crown ridge provides insufficient ventilation in nearly all situations.

    We scrape twice a day with a tractor and maxi scrape to a reception pit and then pump into a tower. The pattern is put on when we laid the floor with a roller just as the concrete is going off, approx cost was about 50 000, but we did most of the work ourselves the bits we didn't do where laying the blocks and erecting the shed.
