As expert Goat & Sheep barn suppliers. Golden M offer a field shelter that is ideally suited to the housing of sheep and goats. Built with a mono-pitch roof on a 40mm box section steel frame, with a box profile steel roof and clad on 3 sides to provide protection against the worst of the wind and rain, the shelter is strong and durable offering the best level of protection for the shepherd, the animals and their feed. It is easily erected and is built on skids, which allow it to be towed from either side. The walls can be clad in either steel or plywood and can be provided with half height gates and, if necessary, roof lights to satisfy the requirement for light and airy conditions.
Sheep and Goats like most other ruminants are social animals, which need the presence of others in order to experience a state of well-being. They are relatively fearful by nature and exhibit a strong instinct to flock. The Welmore Field Shelter from Golden M goat & sheep barn suppliers is available in a range of sizes to accommodate any herd size. It can be located in the middle of a meadow where the animals have all round vision and therefore feel most secure.
The Welmore Field Shelter provides accommodation, which is dry and well ventilated. Sheep and goats are well adapted to extreme temperatures with their fleeces providing an insulating layer, which protects them from both cold and heat, although newborn and newly shorn animals can be susceptible to cold, especially if they are wet.
The mono-pitch roof of the Welmore Field Shelter provides a natural airflow that avoids any possibility of toxic gases formed during the decomposition of urine and faeces becoming trapped in the building and giving rise to respiratory diseases. The ventilation system also minimises the levels of stress experienced in warm weather, since sheep and goats rely on evaporative cooling from the respiratory tract to regulate body temperature. Half height doors or gates can be added to eliminate drafts at the animal level whilst still giving sufficient air movement above.
Sheep and goats are fearful of sharp contrasts in lighting and are reluctant to move from bright areas into dark shaded ones. The open design of the shelter ensures that it appears welcoming to the animals. You won't find similar design considerations from any other sheep or goat barn suppliers
