4 Reasons to Build your Farm Building this Winter

Have you been thinking about putting up a new farm building this year? While many people think about building in the spring, summer or fall, let me tell you why you should consider building your project this winter.

#1. Because it’s possible.

Thanks to southern Alberta’s climate and friendly chinooks, we can build post frame buildings all through the year. Compared to other parts of the country, southern Alberta has very little frost so we can set the posts the same way that we do in the warmer seasons. And at times, conditions can actually be ideal for building.

#2. You’ll get a better deal.

That’s right. The fact is that most construction companies are busiest from spring to fall. So if you want to save a little, book your farm building in the winter.

#3. To shelter your valuable livestock and farm equipment from the elements.

Why wait for next year? Research shows that livestock and equipment will perform better and retain value when stored indoors (or given the option to take a break from the cold and wind if you have cattle or horses).

#4. You’re flexible.

Of course, Mother Nature still rules the building schedule. Our crews are human and can’t function if a blizzard or extreme chill sets in. But compared to other building types, post frame buildings still go up pretty fast. Be prepared for a slightly longer build schedule.

If you decide to build over the winter, leave the snow on your site until a couple of days before the crew is scheduled to arrive. Snow cover will help insulate the ground from potential frost.

5 Ways to Build Agricultural Buildings With Durability in Mind

60x120 Shop 14' lean to

If you’re going to build an agricultural building, you’d better do it right. It takes a durable structure to withstand the forces of mother nature, gravity, animals and more. We realize how enticing it can be to always choose the cheapest building option.  You see cheaper materials or services that seem equal to their more expensive alternatives, so you choose the cheaper option. A building’s a building after all, right?

Absolutely not. That’s like saying “a car’s a car,” but everyone knows a 1990 beater is definitely not equivalent to a brand-new Mercedes. There are a lot of details that go into a building, and those details – no matter how small – can make or break its durability.

Think Maintenance This Seeding Season

Efficiency is likely to be more important this seeding season than ever for many farmers. To squeeze as many acres into the tight seeding window as possible, the temptation is to jack up travel speed and many wonder if they should invest in higher-tech equipment. Those farmers will be looking in the wrong direction to improve efficiency, say equipment experts. The single biggest factor that will make or break one’s ability to seed quickly and effectively is equipment maintenance.
