We understand that those with large animal pets and livestock need to be able to provide a good place for animals to rest and be protected from harsh weather. We built the loafing shed to be just that, a sturdy and rugged structure that can be installed just about anywhere to provide the shelter you need.

What Customers Say about Kauffman Structures

Sick and dead animals are bad news for you and your pocketbook.

Here’s a story: This winter my cousin bought a livestock shelter for his calves, which were extremely susceptible to sickness. The very next day he told me that the shelter had already paid off. He found a calf, which was coming down with sickness, resting in the warmth of the shelter. He was then able to treat it accordingly and bring it back to good health.

This can be your story, just call us today or send us a quote request. We’d be happy to get you the shelter that will suit the needs of your animals and give you the peace of mind you long for.
