Structural steel, custom made farm and industrial sheds.

How to get finance for your farm shed

Any farmer with livestock knows the effort and cost involved in continuing to buy feed for their animals, especially during a time of drought, flooding or other challenging circumstances. Recent environmental challenges have highlighted the challenges farmers face in preparing and protecting their feed and pasture. Feed loss might come in the form of a devastated pasture with crops useless before they’re harvested or it may come in the form of harvested feed losing nutrients due to improper storage. And while you can’t stop every form of feed loss, you might be able to reduce that loss by taking additional steps to protect it.

Benefits of a commercial steel frame shed

If you’re planning on constructing a new commercial shed or building then you’ll want to make sure you’ve considered all of your options before you start building – one of the most important things to decide on is the type of material you use to construct your shed from.

Steel is becoming more and more of a popular material to use when constructing commercial sheds. Steel is already used widely in the construction industry for things like bridges and high rise buildings, it’s also a great option for commercial sheds due to its versatility and durability.

Horse Stables - Inspiration

So you’ve decided to invest in a horse stable – good choice! Horse stables or sheds are a great way to keep your horses safe when they need rest, and also offer complete shelter from the elements. As they say – a healthy horse is a happy horse!

When deciding which horse stable you need, there are many things to consider like how many horses will be housed in the stable, if you want to store hay or other feed in your stable, and any special features you’d like to add. It’s also important to consider how a horse stable will work with any existing structures, such as a dressage arena.

In this blog we cover some common types of horse stables and provide a little inspiration so you can decide what will work best for you, and your horses.

Horse Arena Sizes

Whether you’re a dressage competitor, or you ride horses just for fun, the horse arena that you choose to train in needs to be of adequate size for your training needs. There are different sizes and regulations for different horse arenas, depending on its purpose. If you’re looking to build your own arena for something like jumping or dressage, then it’s important to make sure you’ve got enough space for your requirements.

In this blog we’ll outline the different types of horse arena courses, and what size arenas are best suited for each of these.

Building a dressage arena for all weather conditions

Being based in New South Wales, Australia we’re no strangers to the heat and understand that quality sheds need to be built for all weather conditions. Dressage arenas are no different. One of the most common things we hear from clients that require dressage arenas is that they need to be able to train all year round, so they need something that will be suitable on a hot summer’s day as well as the middle of winter.
