Shopping for Cattle & Livestock Buildings?

A metal building is perfect for barns and other livestock boarding with column-free designs and flexible floor plans to accommodate any of your cattle and livestock needs. You will have ample space for commodity storage and livestock housing all in one building. Column-free designs provide flexibility for layout plans, as metal buildings do not require load- bearing walls. This gives you the ability to keep one area of your metal building dry for storing farm equipment while keeping the other areas open for your livestock needs.

Metal cattle and livestock buildings provide the strength of steel and are resistant to fire and the elemements. Protect your cattle and livestock investments from the threat of fire with a durable metal building. As you are minimizing the threat of fire, you may actually save on your insurance costs with a metal building. Check with your insurance agent about premium savings when investing in metal cattle and livestock buildings.

    Q: Hi - I am trying to sell a farm which has a large metal bldg on it. It seems extra heavy duty/quality construction, is approx 60 X 120, has 4 lg. bays with overhead doors, nice! Is there a market for selling the bldg to be removed? It is truly first class, but its value may be keeping us from selling the house and land. I can get more info...manufacturers name, exact size, etc. Help me if you can....Thanks, Jim in GA
    A: Jim, This is always a tough one because metal buildings are not easily moved. I'm not sure about Georgia erection pricing but in Florida I would expect it to cost about $3.00 /s.f. to tear down, tag, and transport the building to a new site. It will cost about the same to re-erect the building. So now you will have a least $6.00 /s.f. in the building. The purchaser will now have to pour a new slab, run the plumbing, electrical, etc. as you would for any new building. The re-erected building may very will have roof problems because removal and reinstallation of the roof panels is always a problem. The sheets will stick together because the tape mastic at the side and end laps typically does not want to let go. The fastener h...
    Q: I am having a new 30x60 building constructed with a lean-too along the side. The lean-too is attached about 2 feet below the plate of the building. The problem is the way the builder is attempting to seal the space between the top end of the lean-too roof and the wall of the building. He installed a 4"x4" flashing then filled the void between the corrugations with the little rubber insulating strips ment to insulate the building roof panels. He than just caulked along the top and said that was the way it was done!! I am no building expert, but being an old farm boy, I would thing the flashing should either run up higher below the roof over-hang or be cut into the wall sheeting. HELP!!
    A: Kyle, I agree with you. I would call the metal building manufacturer of your new building and ask for their standard “Lean-to tie in flashing detail”. Most of the details I am familiar with have 2 extra wall girts at the tie in elevation of the main or higher building. The wall panels are cut a flashing is placed behind the upper wall panel and out onto the top of the lean-to roof. Foam closure strips and then placed on top of the lean-to roof and under this tie in or “step” flashing with mastic on both top and bottom of the closures. The second lower girt is then used to attach the wall panels of the taller building beneath the lean-to unless that area is to be open with no walls. The easiest way to approach this with your builder...
    Q: Hi, I am trying to find what I call old style through fastened metal roofing panels. This is because they are on buildings on our familys farm which are 50 or more years old. Basically, one style looks almost identical to the current 5V CRIMP pattern but it has rounded ribs rather than the 5V's sharp ribs. I prefer the rounded ribs for many reasons but I type too slow to elaborate and also don't want to potentially bore you. Long story short, there must be enough other people like me for there to be a market for these. Therefore, I can't help but think there must be 1: some niche marketer(s) of these that I have been unable to find yet in the internet netherworld. 2: someone who could make these for me (my research has discovered...
