Fall is almost officially here but the cold weather is already making itself known. This is a time when livestock operations such as sheep, goats and cattle herds need to prepare shelters for the harsher winter season, particularly for those located in higher elevations or in more northern locations.
For a thriving livestock business, it is important to keep your livestock healthy and safe to protect their health, fitness and stamina. This means allowing them to get some outdoor time in a pen or corral when feasible. A prepared shelter can help make this possible, as it allows them to get the exercise they need to help them destress and stay healthy.
At D-S Livestock Handling Equipment our team has been helping customers maintain healthier animals for many years. One of the ways we accomplish this is by offering high-quality equipment such as panels and doors.
If you are considering expanding your livestock sheltering options, you may benefit from the following:
