Cattle Housing

Cattle Housing

Cattle housing is a prefect shelter to protect cattle from the weather. If your are a small or large scale beef or dairy farmer and your animals need shelter then our polytunnels can offer a cost effective solution.

Polypen cattle housing have been used by farmers over many years to improve animal welfare and help increase profitability.

A stable protective environment reduces stress on the animals, particularly when they are heavily in calf and housed cows are cheaper to feed than stock wintered outside.

Herd management becomes easier with increased comfort for both cow and herdsman. Calf survival rate can increase significantly through reduced mortality from exposure.

Livestock Housing

Polytunnel structures can be built on hillsides so long as the fall line is lengthways along the structure.

Usually poly tunnels are laid out with a 1m central feed passage and the size of structure required is calculated by the number of cows.

The gable end frames are large enough to allow a cabbed tractor to work inside for feeding and cleaning out.

Livestock housing is normally clad in white polythene, which offers the most comfortable environment. If environmental/planning issues are important, green polythene can be supplied to blend with the countryside.

UK Manufactured Polytunnels

AG Polytunnels has been designing and manufacturing horticultural buildings for many years from their UK site in the Forest of Dean. We supply UK manufactured polytunnels to domestic growers, large garden centres and commercial users throughout the World.

We use a local galvanising company or plating company to give a rust resistant finish to the various fixings and have ample storage so our lead time is reduced. 

We also keep a small flock of sheep and over winter they are kept in a sheep housing which you are more than welcome to see.
