Cattle Shed, Hadston, Morpeth
Situated between Morpeth and Amble, Hadston has a history of farming that dates back centuries. Our client, based in Hadston, owns and farms a large cattle breeding facility. Due to expansion, caused by the demand for locally reared beef, he ask Northern Structures to design, fabricate and erect a new Cattle Shed.
The steel portal framed building, measures some 36.6m long x 15.25m wide x 4.2m average height to eaves. It is designed to BS5502 Class 2 specifications and is fully CE marked.
We have clad the building using profile 6 fibre cermet sheets, including sky lights, to the roof and used spaced timber boarding to the elevations. The lower walls are constructed from preformed concrete panels.
Internally we have fitted bespoke gates, allowing the farmer to segregate the cattle, and a concrete floor, giving a firm base for the cattle to stand on and a washable platform for mucking out.
To the front elevation, We have built bespoke feed troughs out of concrete panels and steel railings. This allows the farmer to mechanically insert feed into the trough via a tractor driven feed spreader; whilst still allowing the cattle to feed easily from the inside.
