Considerations for cattle

Plenty of Australian livestock owners could use a high-quality, custom designed shed to ensure the health and safety of their cattle.

Barns are an important part of keeping cattle sheltered from extreme weather and assisting in the livelihood of livestock owners.

However, not all barns are created equal, and it's essential for livestock owners to have industrial sheds that suit their specific needs.

The talented design team at Shed Boss is happy to work with you each step of the way in engineering custom designed sheds that will keep you and your herd happy.


Australian summers can be brutal on cattle, which is why it's important to take weather conditions into account during construction. Not only do you need to think about how your barns are built, you need to account for location.

Different building sites will receive different amounts of sun, after all.

It's also important to consider proper ventilation. The size and number of windows, in addition to other sources of ventilation, is an essential part of providing cattle with enough fresh and cooling air.


Plenty of water is a necessity for all living creatures. This should be taken into account when you're constructing your barn. The size and number of troughs or tubs must be considered.

Cattle can drink a considerable amount of water each day, especially in warmer months, so it's important to be on the safe side when planning for water needs.


Besides water troughs, cattle sheds must also be designed with feeding in mind. Whether it's hay or ground feed, you'll want your barns designed to make feeding as simple as possible, taking into account where your cattle will be housed and the easiest ways to maximise your space.

These are only a few of the issues you'll need to consider, but with the experts at Shed Boss in your corner, you can rest easy knowing the needs of your and your cattle will be taken care of.
