I don't know whether it is correct to post it here or not. Before a couple of month I have painted the inner side of my cow shed. The paint clamis to withstand water abuse etc. In the initial days there is not much issues to the cattle. However, since last 15 days the cattles are behaving abnormally. As in they used to sneeze with watery eyes. Dizziness and fatiguealso persists. One of my friend told me it may be due to voc toxicity which is very harmful to cattles and humans aswell. I don't know much regarding this. So browse through some blogs related to this and found that's VOC is very harmful.

Please suggest me with some ideas, is all this symptoms persist due to the VOCs, or allergies or due to flu etc. Suggestions welcomed

Are they only living in the shed, or do they have good ventilation like a run-in lean-to?

What’s the brand of paint, most if not all will have the VOC rating on the can. I use a lot of Sherwin William paint in my business, they have pretty much done away with the high VOC paints, however some makers are still producing them.
