Adding a tack shed to a horse stable

Many people think that a horse stable is simply a horse stable – a covered structure that can house one or many horses to keep them sheltered and safe from the elements. However, there are additions that can be added on to a horse stable to make them more practical for riders, and trainers alike.

Something like a tack shed can be a great addition to a horse stable, particularly for those of you that train often so need to have a range of different gear for yourself, and your horses close by.

In this blog we’ll delve into the benefits of adding a tack shed onto your horse stable plus what you can do to make the most out of a tack shed.

Stay protected: Insure your farm shed

For anyone that owns or operates a farm, farm assets like buildings, equipment and machinery are essential to daily operations and the effective running of a farm. To ensure the smooth operation of your farm all-year-round it’s essential that all necessary farm assets are insured so that your livelihood is protected. With the recent Australian bushfires affecting many areas of the country and devastating communities, wildlife and forests, it’s important to make sure your best assets are protected so that in the case of an emergency, you’re insured.

Keeping Australia moving forward

On the 12th of March the government announced a stimulus package for Australian businesses to keep the economy moving forwards in these uncertain times. Small to medium-sized businesses are the backbone of this country's economy and employ tens of millions of people across the country. Every business plays its part and the government has come to the table with a package designed to keep those business going in as much of a 'business as usual' way as possible.

Just like any new shed or piece of infrastructure, the cost to build a farm shed can be a big investment. There’s a lot to consider when building a new farm shed such as what you will be using the shed for specifically, and if you need to factor in things like extra storage space for machinery. The cost of a quality farm shed can quickly add up so it’s important to know what you’re paying for, and what you could potentially look to spend when planning the build of a farm shed.

We’ve outlined the average cost of a farm shed as well as some essential considerations to give you an idea of what you will end up spending.

Supporting RRT – how we're doing our part

Just like you, we were devastated to see the toll the recent Australian bushfires took on loved ones, communities, forests, and our wildlife. While we managed to stay away from the worst of the fires here in Young, New South Wales, it was heartbreaking to see the amount of damage caused from the fires across the country and to see many who lost their family homes and more.

Now with wild weather and floods ravaging some parts of Australia, it's even more important to keep supporting our firefighters, medical workers and other emergency services during times of crisis so they can keep up the amazing work they do, every single day. That’s why for every shed sold during the months of February and March, we will be donating $1,000 to our friends over at the Rapid Relief Team.

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.
