Steel Barn Applications: Common Uses for Metal Barns on the Farm

Steel Barn

Unlike the traditional wood barns of the past, today’s metal barns come in a variety of styles and configurations that give farmers the freedom and flexibility needed to perform every facet of their job and then some.

Steel barns have several distinct advantages over their traditional counterparts. First, they don’t allow for critter infestations, so you (and your animals) can enjoy a cleaner environment. Second, our high-quality 12- and 14-gauge metal framing keeps the elements out, so you don’t have to worry about warping, cracking, and rotting caused by water damage over time. Third, our metal barns and metal barn kits don’t pose the same type of fire hazard that wooden structures do—this can even save you money on your property insurance. Fourth, you can find metal barns for sale for a fraction of the price of a traditional build, so you can get more for your hard-earned money. Not to mention that when you purchase from a quality manufacturer, you have a virtually maintenance-free steel barn for years to come, backed with an equally impressive warranty for added peace of mind. Here are some common uses for steel barns:

  1. Shelter for Horses and Other Livestock—Keep your precious livestock protected from the elements with a durable, dry steel horse barn.
  1. Boarding Facility— Are you interested in earning extra money by providing boarding services for horse owners? Outfit your barn with an open space for indoor turnout, a tack room, a feed room, and an office area to greet customers.
  1. Hay or Feed Storage—Store hay, grain, and other feed in a clean, dry environment without having to worry about critters.
  1. Workshop—Utilize barn space to work on vehicles, cut wood, or pursue other tasks or hobbies.Steel Barn
  1. Office—Welcome customers to your property by including an office area in your barn.
  1. Indoor Riding Arena—If you would like to provide horseback riding lessons, add a large open area to your horse barn to give lessons and provide your horses with a sheltered area to exercise.
  1. Storage for Large Farm Equipment—Increase the longevity of your tractors and other equipment by protecting them with one of our closed or open ended metal barns for easy access.
