Hay sheds allow storing hay supply in dry conditions by not having to contend with hay loss as a result of moisture and inclement weather conditions. They protect hay by maximizing weather protection and minimizing hay loss. Hay stored outside has been shown to lose 25-35% of total dry matter compared to only a 4-7% loss of hay stored inside. 

In addition preventing losses, storage sheds are effective for protection against:

  • High winds
  • Lightning
  • Fire
  • Mold and mildew
  • Termites

Hay sheds and hay storage buildings can be constructed in many different sizes and styles, including:

  1. Open gables, 
  2. Structures with only posts and a roof system,
  3. Three sided hay storage.
