Designing Dairy Sheep Shelters that will Maximise Production and Prioritise Sheep Comfort

Sheep milk is becoming increasingly popular around the world, as it is a rich source of calcium, is easy to digest, and has higher levels of many other minerals and vitamins than cow and goat milk.

If you want to tap into this emerging opportunity talk to Aztech Buildings today about a barn that is perfectly designed to keep your sheep happy and comfortable, while maximising production.
It is important when investing in a large structure like an animal barn to invest in quality, so that it will last for many years. An Aztech shed offers the farmer an increased return on his investment because it provides cost-effective protection from the elements, with a minimum 50-year lifespan.

Designed using Aztech’s Stratos™ system, dairy sheds are constructed with timber poles and our full box beam steel rafters and purlins. The Zero-Bird-Perch rafter system keeps the barn clear of bird droppings. The gable roof design includes translucent roof sheets to manage lighting and a ridge vent to optimise airflow and ventilation.

A recent client of Aztech’s said they contracted Aztech to build their sheep barn, “because they’re a local firm and this is the second farm building that Aztech has constructed for us. We have worked with them in the past, and know that they produce a good building, fast and efficiently, on time and on budget, all of which are important.”

And regarding our health and safety practices. “This is really essential. While having a large construction site on the farm can present a big risk, they manage it very well.”

For your peace of mind – all our dairy sheep structures feature these benefits:

  • Custom designed and manufactured in NZ
  • We will work closely with you to ensure that the structure we collaborate on meets your requirements and is perfectly matched to your specifications
  • Your flock will be protected from the NZ elements, year-round, and our structures will support their comfort in both the harsher cold winter as well as from the summer sun
