Electrical Wiring for Barns, Riding Arenas, Animal Habitat and Feed Storage

Special precautions must be taken with electrical wiring in the above types of buildings because of dust from feed and litter and corrosive agents associated with animal confinement. Buildings constructed under the “Agricultural Exempt” building status (no building permit required) that are used for the above purposes must also comply with the following requirements. Milking parlors and areas where livestock may come in contact with metallic equipment have additional requirements including Equipotential Planes and require electrical plan review prior to construction.
