LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION AND RANCHING
Maintaining the health and well-being of your livestock is key to a farmer’s success. Calhoun’s clearspan cattle hoop barns give you the ideal environment to raise your livestock, shielding them from harsh weather and protecting them from outside predators.
Studies have shown that an increase in the amount of light a dairy cow is exposed to will increase their milk production almost immediately. The shape and flexibility of our fabric agricultural structures provide optimal indoor temperatures for your livestock, providing lower utility costs while keeping your herd healthy. Whether producing beef, dairy, or farming hogs, sheep, or goats, Calhoun’s bright and airy hoop barns create healthy, calm, and well-ventilated clearspan interiors for your herd.
HEALTHIER FOR LIVESTOCK
Calhoun’s cattle barns offer naturally bright interiors and ventilation providing consistent air quality and reduced airborne health problems caused by humidity and moisture. The thermally non-conductive properties of our hoop barns ensure a warmer interior during colder months and a cooler interior during warmer months.
In comparison to a traditional dark, wood or steel building, Calhoun’s clearspan hoop barns offer natural daylight and superior air quality and ventilation – proven to produce increased weight gain, increased productivity, and an overall healthier cattle barn.
