Subject: Portable calving sheds...What do you have?


North Central Kansas

I'm wanting to puchase a shed to put on stalks or winter grass to help with calving.  I've been searching the web and am not having much luck finding many.  I want a three or four stall shed that is capable of having a headgate to catch the cow and a nursing gate.  What have you used and any opinions on good ones vs. bad ones.  What brands are out there.  I'm wanting to do some more research before buying.  Thanks for your help.

I bought one at the Salina farm show a couple years ago. Much cheaper than the daniels and well built. I cant think of the brand yet but think it came from wakeeney Ks. Larson was the builder I think. Only thing i dont like are the chain latches on the gate. But they never have broke yet,

I've looked at those at the Salina farm show as well, but wan unable to find them on the web.  Thanks for your help.  I just found their site under Larson Steel.

Shelters. Depends on your steel supply. Say 3' high slope to 30". 8' wide and as long of skid tubes as is handy.
