"The Modern Way To Bring Your Stock In From The Cold"

« Previous    Play    Next »
Showing Slide  

Move your farm into the 21st century and bring your stock in from the cold. More and more farmers are discovering the advantages of utilising proven greenhouse technology and the heat retention properties of modern plastic films for use with stock.

Harford's innovative stock shelters are now used by farmers throughout New Zealand for winter quarters for dairy cows, covered deer yards, piggeries, calf rearing sheds and even hay sheds. Why spend a fortune on building expensive structures when plastic film Stock Shelters can do the same job for a fraction of the cost?

Harford's design and engineering excellence has been proven through the worst of New Zealand's weather. Through storm and cyclone, Harford structures have come through unscathed. Harford's plastic film Stock Shelters will withstand high winds without structural damage.

Spans of 6 or 7 metres and single or multi-bay design means you can build your yards to any size you need, on virtually any site. Hooped top with straight sides allows maximum use of floor area while roller batten gutters make single skin tensioning of roof areas easy. Sides can be open or enclosed as required using Cliploc plastic fasteners for film or windbreak. Solid sides can also be incorporated, creating fully enclosed sheds for far lower cost than conventional building methods.

Exceptionally strong construction is achieved with steel columns and simple sleeve connection joints. Any farmer can now easily and quickly erect - and move - their own stock shelters with Harford's kitsets.
