Extending wi fi 50 yds from secondary router into building

Hi folks , nice to be here !!
Am wondering how to adapt our good home wi fi into the dairy room (a brick built place some 50 yds from a netgear router that is being used as an extender /access point ,that is cat 5'd into the main router that is some 20 yds from it inside the house !
So althought the main router casts a signal out side the secondry one boosts that around the farm yard for 100 yds maybe ,it appears that there is a bit of a blank area in the back of the dairy ,where I use an old smartphone to give an old cd player an source of input to keep my Mrs happy , whilst milking the cows !!
Some times its ok ,but lately , it is a bit flaky , maybe 50% signal that means the app drops out a fair bit!!
(When its good ,its great , when its not its non usable)
I did wonder if this was more to do with others drwing on the broadband during peak times ,but have decided it needs to get the full monty of wi fi before I can make a proper judgement on that !!
Any suggestions on an extender that might be fixed inside the window in plain sight of my secondary router , so as to make the smartphone near to that extender , get the full shilling???
There is power there so thats not a problem ,(and plug in extenders arent an option I fear ) just need a few suggestions folks??
Thanks in advance !! Anto
