Natural Light Fabric Structures completes salt and sand storage building for Town of Necedah, WI.

The 44′ x 96′ DP series building was installed on a 4′ tall concrete foundation piers. The one ended building spans 8′ tall precast concrete bunker panels and will hold approximately 1,500 tons of product. The main frames of the building were all hot dipped galvanized after all the welding and cutting was completed. This is a huge advantage in substantially reducing the risk of the steel rusting from the inside out down the road.

Natural Light Fabric Structures are ideal for commodity storage for many reasons:

  • Buildings are designed to maximize air floor
  • polyethylene fabric substantially reduces the risk of condensation compared to wood/steel buildings
  • Buildings high clearances create a safe working environment for truck and payloader operators
  • Building steel is galvanized which reduces the risk of rusting in a highly corrosive environment like salt

Hoop Beef Barns for Livestock/Cattle.

Natural Light Fabric Structures wanted to share a link to a research article that was published by Iowa State on Hoop Barns for Beef Cattle.

A hoop barn is a Quonset™-shaped structure with side walls 10 to 12 feet high made of treated wood posts and wood sides. Tubular steel arches

fastened to the tops or sides of the posts form a hooped roof, which is covered with an UV-resistant, polyvinyl tarp.

Hoop barns are naturally ventilated and are sited to take advantage of prevailing winds. In the Midwest, most buildings are oriented in a north south direction when used for livestock housing to take advantage of summer winds, which generally come from the south. Hoop barns may offer an alternative to producing beef in open feedlots where concerns exist about runoff and lot manure management. The biggest question is can the pollution potential be reduced without suffering losses in productivity and production costs.

When to Consider Hoop Barns

Hoop barns appear to be most beneficial when producers have one or more of the following goals:

• Want to provide weather protection at a low-cost

• Desire livestock housing for cold weather that can double as economical hay storage during summer

• Desire to relocate the building in the near future

• Want to utilize a solid floor, bedded-housing system

• Want protection from sun and rain without full environmental control

• Want to eliminate outdoor lots and runoff concerns

• Want full control of manure at low capital cost

• Willing to trade management for capital outlay
