Livestock Shelter or Greenhouse?

One of the questions we are often presented with has to do with customers wanting a structure for dual purpose. In itself, this could be considered as a wise strategy to get multiple uses for a building so that it can be used closer to year round.

The question which needs to be asked is “Are these complimentary applications?

One of these dual applications is for greenhouses and livestock shelters. There are a lot of similarities between the two with the most prominent ones being a double roof cover with air between and that they often have roll up sides.

Where the problem arises is that when you have a greenhouse, there MUST be a clear cover to allow the proper spectrum of light to come through to allow plant growth to occur. This level of light comes with heat which can easily be a problem for animals.

For a livestock shelter 90% of the battle is keeping them dry and out of the wind, cool is better then warm. If your animals will only be in the shelter during inclement weather, you will likely have more leeway in dealing with heat.

We have had customers who cover with single clear during growing season and the put an extra layer of white during the animal housing.

If you have any questions or concerns on how you plan to use your shelter, please call or email for extra input.

Orders, Delivery & Pricing Update

It has always been MSS’s style to provide the necessary or requested information and pricing to people, and then let you do the required number crunching and planning and take the time you need. We have never made a practice of pressuring anyone to buy before they are ready. The current and changing circumstances warrants us to give you a heads up however.

Our lead times will continue to be a minimum of 8 weeks due to the extra work involved with COVID protocols. We are also going through a time of significant price uncertainty so pricing and quotes can only be guaranteed for 30 days.

The more notice we receive on the structure(s) you wish to purchase, the better we can guarantee it to arrive when you need it.

We are grateful for the way that our customers are thinking ahead for their structure purchases. We thank you for the opportunity of working with you on your shelter and greenhouse projects.

We wish you a happy new year and a safe and prosperous spring.

Thanks
Norm Eygenraam, President
