A barn is an agricultural construction usually on farms and used for a variety of purposes. From the North American region, a barn describes structures which house livestock, including horses and cows, as well as equipment and fodder, and often grain. Because of this, the expression barn is often qualified e.g. tobacco barn, dairy barn, sheep barn, potato barn. From the British Isles, the expression barn is restricted mainly to storage arrangements for unthreshed cereals and fodder, the terms byre or shippon being applied to cow shelters, whereas horses have been kept in structures called stables. On the Continent, however, barns were often a part of integrated structures called byre-dwellings (or housebarns in US literature). In addition, barns might be used for equipment storage, as a covered workplace, also for activities such as threshing.
