Fabric Buildings for Dairy Use

Tasco Dome manufactured high quality buildings for the dairy industry. Fabric covered structures are a healthy alternative to traditional wood and steel buildings, they are installed quickly and are a cost effective option.

Ontario’s OMAFRA website devotes a page to the benefits of fabric covered buildings for livestock. They state, “Fabric-covered buildings can provide a low cost alternative for livestock that can be housed in a cold environment, provided the producer knows the limitations and how to work with them. Properly designed, they provide a bright airy well ventilated environment that can be a pleasure to work in.” http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/livestock/beef/news/info_vbn1013a1.htm

One of the main features of a Tasco Dome is the bright interior. Light intensity and duration play a big role on the health of dairy cattle. Light affects cows in the following ways:

  • Increased milk production
  • Improved fertility
  • Better oestrus detection
  • Shorter calving intervals
  • Better disease detection

Tasco Dome free stall barns take advantage of these benefits, helping you keep your herd healthy and productive.

Housing calves in a fabric structure provides a healthy environment for the calves. It also protects the handler from the elements during feeding and management, unlike using outdoor calf hutches.
