What?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s a Quonset?
Steel has a myriad of uses on a farm. Quonset huts are very common on farms. A Quonset hut is a light weight prefabricated building made from corrugated, galvanized steel. The hut has a semi circular shape and was designed based on the Nissen hut that was developed by the British in World War I. The name of this hut stems from the site of the first manufacturing location at Quonset Point in Rhode Island. A Quonset hut can be large enough to cover many functions, from a garage for all of the farm equipment, to a totally different kind of barn.
Steel farming facilities
Barns are generally no longer built from wood; they are built from steel which is a sustainable resource that is infinitely recyclable. They are cheaper than wood barns and much more durable. You can purchase a ?¢‚Ç¨Àúkit?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢ and build your whole barn yourself, with everything except for the tools provided in the kit. Horse stables are also created out of steel as are the stalls. Of course the trusty tractor sitting in the Quonset hut is also made from steel, along with the various attachments used to work the land and keep the area tidy. If you own a dairy, you absolutely can?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t get by without steel, not only the buildings themselves are made from that material, so are the machines that handle the milking and pasteurizing process and the trucks that take the milk on the road.
Farming friendly steel
Steel is a tough material that can stand up to harsh weather conditions and annoyed horses. Steel is a product that has become an integral part of any farm, whether commercial based or just the family farm with a horse, some chickens and other farmyard animals. Steel makes farming easier and cheaper to perform which means that produce coming from those farms will be cheaper also.
