For a sprinkler system to be effective it needs to be the proper type for what the building is used for. Most ag buildings would need a deluge system which require a large volume of water. A deluge system doesn't use the sprinklers that have a fuseable link like you mentioned. They use sprinklers that are always open, and a control valve that is triggered by heat detectors. Even though the dry systems use the sprinklers with the fuseable links, they still require a large volume of water to be effective. Reference SMS's and Ken Macfarlane's posts.

I think you're mistaken about what is required in terms of systems... Most I have seen are dry systems, in frozen buildings... with individually fused heads. Depending on local codes, it's quite acceptable.

There's lots of systems installed in buildings that to not have municipal water systems. Local school has one... and they had a fire. It saved the building. That said, I do not know how it works in that building. I suspect it has a large header tank to supply the water.
