Why should I choose a ROVA for my farm?
If you are looking for simplicity, absolute control and a more natural way of raising your poultry or other grazing livestock, the ROVA series is for you. This all-in-one machine will be able to brood your chicks, walk your chickens, collect your eggs and much more!
Are there different sizes of the ROVA|BARN?
Since one size does not fit all, we offer three different sizes of ROVA|BARN, plus optional feed and brooder additions. Sizes include 200, 400 and 700 sq. ft capacity models of the ROVA|BARN.

How is the ROVA|BARN 
With its modular design, our ROVA|BARNs can be shipped directly by freight to you from our distribution centres.
If I order today, when would I receive my ROVA|BARN?
We handcraft each ROVA|BARN with care and assemble the component parts on sight at our test farm in Manitoba, Canada. Current lead times are approximately 4 to 6 months. The shipping time will depend on your location.
Will I require specific training to operate my ROVA|BARN?
The ROVA|BARN is specifically designed for farmers, just like us! Simply follow a tutorial on our mobile app and our certified staff will take you through a training session. Customize the setup and raise some of the happiest chickens around!
Where are ROVA|BARNs designed and manufactured?
The ROVA|BARN, accessories and our other smart farm equipment are all engineered, tested and built close to the UKKÖ family farm in Manitoba, Canada.
How is the ROVA|BARN controlled?
The ROVA|BARN is moved and controlled using our wireless pendant. Parameters are configured using our mobile app.
How can a ROVA|BARN protect my livestock from predators?
When engineering the ROVA|BARN, predators were our main concern. We developed a patent-pending flexible skirt that ensures optimal protection against the chickens’ numerous predators. The skirt is also equipped with electrified fabric wires to further protect your livestock.
Does Ukkö Robotics have access to the cameras on my ROVA|BARN?
UKKÖ Robotics will not have access to your cameras unless given permission.
Who can fix a ROVA|BARN?
Most repairs can be done by yourself since we embrace a modular build. With our mobile app’s help, you can determine the replacement part needed, order the correct part, and follow a tutorial on our app to replace it. Need a hand? We’re here to help.
What types of animals can I raise in the ROVA|BARN?
The ROVA|BARN is suitable for poultry (broilers, layers and large birds) as well as pigs (growing pigs and sows) and sheep. We offer a brooding attachment for broilers and an automatic nesting box attachment for layers. Both can be installed and removed depending on which animal you want to raise.
Can I use the ROVA|BARN in winter?
Yes! If you want to raise your animals (layers, pigs or sheep) during winter, we offer a winterization package to heat the water tanks and the water lines.

Note: The ROVA|BARN should be plugged to a power source due to the amount of energy that takes to heat.
Do I need to be a chicken farmer to use a ROVA|BARN?
No, we have built the ROVA|BARN so anyone can raise their own animals. Our mobile app is designed to give detailed instructions on using the ROVA|BARN and raise poultry. The live camera feed can be shared with a local veterinarian to assist you in the event of an emergency.
How much time does it take to assemble a ROVA|BARN?
We believe in simplicity; it should take no more than half a day for two people to assemble a ROVA|BARN depending on the model and the accessories. Once assembled, follow the mobile app’s steps to get the ROVA|BARN ready for your animals.
