Providing your livestock with shelter from the elements with the waterproof fabric and shade during the summer is important. While cattle and other livestock have a remarkable ability to cope with environmental stress, the combination of high temperature and humidity, with high levels of solar radiation and minimal air flow, can lead to increased levels of stress and exceed the animals ability to dissipate body heat. Waterproof fabric also helps keep the ground dry during the wet season.

Excessive heat load in feedlot cattle or other livestock can lead to significant production losses and welfare issues. Providing shade is one strategy that is commonly used to reduce the impact of intense heat conditions on your livestock.

There are a number of different shade and shelter structure options available and the best one for your feedlot or sale yard depends on your setup. The team at Polytex are here to help you through the whole process so feel free to give us a call or request a quote and we’ll be in touch.
