Wind Protection

To Shelter Livestock
In blizzard country, especially the prairies and northern plains, designing wind protection for animals is tricky because structures will also trap drifting snow. We have some guidelines for shelters that give the most wind protection for the least dollars with minimum drifts in the shelter zone. In the basics of wind shelters, we show which dimensions are critical, to keep critters from getting buried in a snowdrift.

Build it--they'll come.
(Oh yes--about repairs...)
