Livestock Housing


Healthy Housing for Happy Animals

ClearSpan livestock barns are designed to protect your animals and increase your profits. Our livestock buildings offer an inviting atmosphere that animals thrive in. The ample sunlight and natural ventilation assist in a dramatic reduction of moisture and bacteria, offering a healthier, fresher, cleaner and drier environment—one that promotes rapid weight gain and reduces the risk of disease and mortality in your livestock. ClearSpan's fabric covers offer sound-dampening qualities to help keep your animals stress free.

Features & Benefits

Economical
Economical - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

At a low cost per square foot, ClearSpan Hercules Truss Arch Buildings are the most economical solution for livestock housing. ClearSpan Fabric Structures are as little as half the cost of comparable pole barns or wood structures. Save further by installing a building directly on the ground with little to no site preparation. Costly concrete foundations are not necessary for your livestock barn.

Spacious Interior
Spacious Interior - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

Due to the unique engineering of ClearSpan Fabric Structures, all of the inside space is useable. There are no internal columns or other obstructions to interfere with your desired pen configuration and livestock move about freely. With superior height and clearance compared to traditional metal or wood buildings, our livestock structures allow you to utilize as much space as possible.

Indoor Temperature Stability
Indoor Temperature Stability - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

ClearSpan's white fabric cover's translucent and reflective qualities allow energy savings by providing temperature stability inside our livestock buildings. ClearSpan buildings are climate responsive–they stay 15° - 20° cooler in the summer and 15° - 20° warmer in the winter. The temperate interior of your fabric livestock structure will keep your cattle and animals comfortable year round and reduce energy costs.

Excellent Air Quality

Experience a barn environment that is fresher and healthier than conventional steel and wood buildings. The natural light that filters through ClearSpan covers cuts down on moisture and bacteria growth, providing an environment that is healthier than conventional steel and wood buildings. Superior ventilation options, such as roll-up sides and ridge vents, are also available for improved air quality.

Fewer Pests
Fewer Pests - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

Pests and insects won't be a nuisance or cause damage in a ClearSpan livestock hoop building. Without traditional insulation or wood construction, there are less pests. The corner-free design, combined with abundant natural light, creates an unappealing setting for nesting rodents and offers no hiding places for them. With fewer pests such as rats, the buildings offer a cleaner environment that is safe to use as a dairy or calving barn.

Abundant Natural Light

ClearSpan's white fabric covers let natural light shine through. With abundant daytime lighting that is bright and natural, the interior of a ClearSpan structure is an inviting environment that all types of livestock, from dairy and beef cattle to alpacas and llamas, thrive in. The natural light in ClearSpan Fabric Structures improves the mood of livestock, reduces the need for artificial lighting and lowers your energy consumption.

Ours versus Theirs

ClearSpan Fabric Livestock Housing Building - ClearSpan Fabric Structures
Traditional Livestock Housing Building - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

Bright and Open

Fabric cover lets in natural light, even when it's not bright out; livestock are more comfortable in the open, airy, bright space.

Dark and gloomy with low ceilings and little natural light; costly electric bills; cold, industrial feel.

Maximum Usable Space

No interior support posts means equipment can maneuver with ease; extra space for storing hay and equipment.

Support posts and beams limit usable space and may get in the way of equipment.

Superior Air Quality

Natural light cuts down moisture and bacteria growth; environment is fresh and healthy.

Dark, moist interior breeds bacteria, creates unhealthy environment for livestock.

Temperate Interior

Climate responsive interior means cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

Hot summers and cold winters increase energy needed to keep animals comfortable.
