As stated below, machine sheds and barns are rarely heated, and water supply if any ussually only consists of an ordinary hydrant. A few other points, if hay gets on fire and it CAN ignite itself if in the right circumstance, water won't put it out. Maybe keep the flames down a little is all. Other materials such as oils and fuels and some chemicals if on fire would also fit into the same catagory of water not gonna do much good. Its not like an office building fire where you might have a few sheets of paper on fire and alot of smoke. Something has to set off a sprinkler system. These types of buildings are often un-attended by people. Often well ventilated if relying on smoke to be detected and set off the sprinkler. Often have really high ceilings where the system would be installed if relying on heat to set it off. By the time it was heat activated, it would likely be to late for the fire. By that time it would of likely engulfed something that would be really hard to put out with a few trickles of water. Its not just the cost of the system, in alot of cases it probly wouldn't be as affective as you think it would be. A sprinkler system is moreless designed to put a small fire out before it is out of controll. In a barn or machine shed, it would likely be out of control before the system was activated. If activated then, it would really only aid the fire department in extinguishing the fire, and not solely extinguishing it itself. My 2 cents.
