Run-In Basic Features
The Basic Run-In Shed is a strong, aesthetically pleasing shelter designed for medium sized livestock, but adaptable enough for just about anything. The practicality of this model lies within the versatility, permanence, and price point. This basic version of the Run-In Shed is the can be used as equipment storage or a work bay too.
Whether you’re raising goats, sheep or cows, protection from the elements is essential for keeping your herd or flock healthy and productive. If you raise medium to large livestock animals that are sensitive to rain, wind, and hot sun, setting up a sturdy barn is one of the best investments you can make in your animals’ health. Some may require stall barn shelter for nightly quarters as well as day shelter such as a portable prefabricated loafing shed. If you keep horses or other animals that like to roam, consider a Run-In Shed. These provide the same reliable protection from wind and rain but allow more freedom. From the smallest chicken coops to the largest stall barns, our buildings are made from rot-resistant Vermont Hemlock and Pine providing sufficiently warm, dry, and well-ventilated conditions to fit your livestock needs. Their simple interiors are easy to clean, helping to protect your animals from disease and parasites.

Whether you have just one animal or a handful of critters, we have many size options to fit your needs: 11 of them, to be exact. All of our Run-Ins that are 18’ or 20’ long have two rough openings, while the smaller models have a single opening. Your choice will depend on how many animals you have or how much work and storage space is needed.
