Frequently Asked

A fabric building has a steel truss frame structure with a fabric membrane roof. The fabric membrane tensions across the framework creating a strong, durable, and cooler space inside.

Fabric beef barns improve animal health, minimize health risks by improving ventilation, and they create an easier-to-manage interior. Because they have a lightweight structure, they are also capable of being designed without interior columns that get in the way of the space you need.

Animal welfare is improved with our fabric material. The fabric material in our cattle buildings allows for more natural light, improving average daily gains (ADG). This fabric roof allows for better temperature control, keeping cattle cooler in the hot summer, and helping to provide protection from harsh winter elements. More so, the improved air circulation and cooler temperatures allow for enhanced cow comfort, leading to improved growth rates.

Beef cattle fabric covered buildings are highly customizable and designed to be easier to manage overall. They are lighter in weight, which can contribute to more flexibility in the layout, enhancing productivity.

You must consider weather and topography of the area. You also have to consider the location based on feed and pasture availability and ease of access.

Cattle sheds and buildings must, at the very least, provide a space that is clean and comfortable for the number of animals present. They must allow for proper drainage of water, room for the animal to stand and lie down, and provide easy access to food and drink. Additionally, it is critical to consider how well the environment supports the production of beef in terms of management of the animals, keeping people and herd safe.

For barn space for a cow that weighs 1,000 to 1,300 pounds, 35-50 square feet per head is ideal. For cow and calf pens, generally 200-500 square feet is adequate.

Simply, yes, fabric beef barns are ideal for beef barn construction. High quality, well-designed, and customized buildings can be effective for 25 to 30 years before the roof needs to be replaced, handling all of the demands of the cattle and the farm itself. The material used in these spaces is specifically resilient to the climate and conditions present, which helps to support its longevity. Fabric can withstand all aspects of nature while providing ample protection from predators as well.

Yes, beef cattle barns with a fabric roof can be easily customized to fit virtually any size requirements necessary.  Our beef barns range from 24 feet wide to 210 feet wide without any length limitations. This allows for ample options whether you need small beef cattle barns for a hobby farm or a large space to increase production.

As customizable spaces, there are numerous benefits to using fabric buildings for beef barns, including that they improve ventilation overall. Options for ventilation and airflow include rollup doors, open sidewalls, ridge vents, and both covered and uncovered chimneys. By utilizing a customized layout and design, it is possible to create passive systems that incorporate both stack ventilation as well as cross ventilation, improving animal health and wellbeing while also contributing to the overall environmental safeguards necessary.

Fabric beef barns are increasingly recognized for their energy efficiency compared to traditional structures, primarily due to their innovative design features. One of the most significant advantages is the abundance of natural light these buildings allow during daytime hours. This natural illumination reduces the dependency on artificial lighting, thereby lowering energy consumption and costs. The translucent materials used in fabric barns ensure that a bright, well-lit environment is maintained throughout the day, which is not only energy-efficient but also beneficial for the well-being of the animals. Moreover, the design of fabric beef barns promotes improved air flow and cooler interiors. This enhanced ventilation means that there is less need for mechanical air movement systems, such as fans or air conditioners, leading to further reductions in energy usage, which makes them as much as 70% more energy efficient to maintain overall.
