Protect your Hay for a Healthy Farm
Fabric Covered Hay Barns for Farms of all Sizes
Whether you have a few horses or a thousand cattle we have a structure that will fit you needs. Investing in quality Hoop barn for hay storage can pay dividends in keeping your livestock healthy. The University of Minnesota claims storing your round bales inside can reduce loss by around two thirds. To further reduce feed loss and improve the health of your herd consider also moving your cow-calf, backgrounding or finishing operation under roof with an Accu-Steel Cattle barn designed to for cattle.
Modern building fabrics are durable and long lasting and their galvanized steel truss infrastructure can last a lifetime. Hot dip galvanizing provides a strong resistance to rust. Accu-Steel trusses are welded prior to galvanizing to protect critical joints in your hay shed.
Our hay barns use engineered web trusses that are sized to your local snow load and wind ratings, this is important for Hoop building in areas like ours, here in northern MN, where we have a 60-pound ground snow load rating. Make sure the building you are considering is rated to withstand your local conditions.
Built to Expand as Your Farm Grows
A 50×60 shelter maybe all you need today, but tomorrow you may need that to be a 50×120. With our Keder track system we can easily come back and make your length whatever you need.
What Can I build My Barn on?
there is a lot of flexibility on what to build on, though larger barns do remove some option as you are protecting more against uplift than building weight. If you have access to Jersey Barriers or Washout Block those could be a good option. For smaller structures you may want to build a wood ponywall and maybe even sheet it with tin. Have an earth auger for your stidsteer, you may want to dig holes for concrete piers. You could also pour concrete footings or have helical piers drilled.

A Width and Length to Fit your space
Maybe you don’t want an 800 ft long barn, that’s fine we can go wider and add additional barns as required.
