Farmer’s Day with a New Texas Farm Building

Happy National Farmer’s Day!

October 12 is National Farmer’s Day, and it was established as a day to honor America’s hardworking farmers, past and present. If you’re not a farmer yourself, chances are pretty good that National Farmer’s Day doesn’t currently show up on your family’s holiday calendar – but maybe it should. While it may never be as popular as Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, or Halloween, National Farmer’s Day is still a day worth celebrating.

Why? Well, you like eating, don’t you? While only 2% of the American population can be considered as “professional” farmers, those 2% effectively feed and sustain the other 98% of us. See why National Farmer’s Day really is a big deal?


Everything’s Bigger in Texas – Including the Farming

To that end, there’s no state where farming is a bigger deal than in Texas. They say that everything’s bigger in Texas, and that definitely includes the agriculture industry, too. It makes sense when you think about it – Texas is the 2nd largest state in terms of land area (behind only Alaska), and it’s also the 2nd most populous (behind only California).

You probably know that Texas tops the charts in oil production, but Texas is also a leader in cattle & calves, dairy, and cotton. Other key Texas farm commodities include chickens, eggs, corn, wheat, rice, peanuts, sorghum, hay, and timber. There are more farms and ranches in Texas than in any other state, and the vast majority of those are family farms or family-held corporations.


The Rigors of Farming in Texas Call for Rugged & Reliable Steel Farm Buildings

What makes a steel farm building better? Pretty much everything you can think of! For starters, you don’t have the same moisture concerns that come along with a barn, shed, or agricultural building made with wood. Steel simply doesn’t rot like wood, and it offers much more reliable protection from storms, weather extremes, lightning, even earthquakes. Termites aren’t attracted to steel as a food source, either. In fact, you really shouldn’t have any worries with termites, insects, rodents, or any other pests – none of these critters are able to put a dent in a steel building. You’ll have fewer fire concerns, too, since steel is naturally non-combustible.

There are other advantages that come with choosing a metal agriculture building, too. Steel is a much more flexible and versatile construction material than wood or other materials. You can expand or adapt a steel structure more easily as your needs continue to grow, evolve, and change. And maintaining a steel farm building is much easier than maintaining a wooden structure, too. Do you really want to have to fool with a wooden barn or building that needs repainting or restaining every few years? Steel buildings don’t require regular refinishing, and cleaning a metal farm building is much easier, too. In most cases, all you have to do is hose your structure out and hose it off, and you’re good! And for that occasional deeper cleaning, a pressure washer does the job nicely.
