Agricultural Buildings and Barns
Agricultural buildings are usually located on farms and used for various purposes. In North America, a barn refers to structures that house livestock, including cattle and horses, as well as equipment and fodder, and often grain. Each style of agricultural build has its own advantages. OK Valley Builders builds all varieties of agricultural buildings – horse barns, chicken barns, hay barns, shops, sheds and shelters.
The pole barn is the most simple of all shed designs. It is essentially where posts or poles are fixed into the ground, secured together at the top, which then support a roof. They are typically used on farms to shelter feed or equipment, but can be of any size, and are therefore great for backyards too.
Solutions for animal shelters can be open or closed. A shelter exposes that animal to the open air and the animal can come and go as it pleases. A shelter is also a less expensive option than a barn. Although the fresh air in the open shelter has its advantages it also exposes the animal to the elements. A full barn provides full shelter for the animal and gives you the ability to contain the animal if needed.
Hay stored outside must be covered to avoid the damage due to rain. Haybarns are a great option for doing that.
From haybarns to animal shelters, OK Valley Barn Builders can assist you with all your agricultural buildings needs and help you protect your livestock, equipment and hay. Browse through some of our work to see pole sheds, horse shelters and hay barns constructed by OK Valley Barn Builders.
