Spanish term or phrase: Galpón dormidero
Type of document: Educational document for a sustainable school in Paraguay that deals with live-stock practices.

The source text is in Spanish (Paraguay) and the target-text will be translated into American English for English-speaking parts of Africa.

Specific context: En el "galpón dormidero" y otros locales de confinamiento se deberá garantizar el acceso de todos los animales al comedero. 70 cms como mínimo de comedero por animal.

I am quite sure that dormidero means "roosts" in English and that galpón can mean a "shed". However, I have never heard either of these words used together. I have looked through online dictionaries and databases, but I can not seem to find this term. If possible, could anyone provide any advice as to this term's translation.

Thank you in advance for your help and time!
