Livestock Enclosures

Using Metal for Livestock Enclosures

Metal is one of the most durable building materials on the market, making it one of the best options for livestock enclosures. Other materials will deteriorate over time and will require frequent repairs, in turn costing you more money.

When Bridger Steel's metal is properly installed, it will last a lifetime and protect your livestock for years to come.

Maintenance of Metal Livestock Enclosures

One of the most attractive features of metal livestock enclosures is the low maintenance they require. Metal is easy to clean and its non-porous surface won't collect bacteria.

Other materials, such as wood and stone, can be hard to keep clean and may require frequent repairs. Overtime, wood can also be overrun by termites. Metal is strong, durable, and can last for decades to come.

Protection on the Farm & Ranch

Weather can be unpredictable. That's why it's important to protect your livestock with durable metal buildings. Bridger Steel's metal is designed to protect your livestock in all weather conditions — from freezing cold temperatures to hot, humid summer days. On warm, sunny days, metal will reflect the sun's rays for cool, shaded areas. It's reflective qualities make it an energy efficient and green building choice as an added bonus! When the temperatures drops, metal enclosures will be the protective barrier needed to keep your herd warm. 

Livestock aren't the only things that need to be protected on the farm. Crops harvested throughout the summer are what keep a farm going during harsh, long winter months. At Bridger Steel, we know how important it is to keep these crops dry, so we included an anti-siphon groove in our most sought-after agricultural metal panels. These grooves are designed to keep water out, so you have one less thing to worry about when it comes to ensuring your assets are well-protected.  

Galvanized Metal: A Top Choice for Livestock Enclosures

Galvanized metal is a staple on agricultural buildings because of it's high-performing and long-lasting qualities. Farmers and ranchers look to galvanized steel panels to make sure their buildings stand for decades.

What makes this steel stand out is the zinc coating that prevents the metal from rusting. Corrosion can come from many sources, such as fertilizer and urea from animal waste and large amounts of precipitation. The resin coating in galvanized steel panels will also help your enclosure better resist scuff marks and scratches to keep your building looking new for decades.
