Why Opt For A Sheep Housing Polytunnel...


Polytunnels allow much welcomed light and warmth to enter the building. This not only improves food conversion rates but also create a healthier, drier environment which is less favourable to many bacteria and fungi.


We have found customers using our structures for hay/general storage as well as a dry place to house sheep before and during sheering, making them a year round investment. They are becoming increasingly popular as calf housing and poultry sheds, as well as housing for dairy herds, beef cows, goats and pigs.


Infrared energy from daylight creates warmer and drier housing conditions - reducing bedding costs.


Increased use of natural light means lower energy requirements.


Increased food conversion ratio - lower feed cost


Lower risk of disease


Content livestock - improved welfare


Increased lambing percentage


Lower cost than traditional buildings


Light provides natural vitamin enriching sunshine and warmth to stock

Why choose Northern Polytunnels...




The image of a polytunnel as a poor man's shed no longer applies with the advancements in structure design, covering materials development and engineering techniques. Polytunnels are an inexpensive alternative to traditional buildings. As one of our customers said "the best thing we have ever purchased".




Northern Polytunnels has adapted the traditional polytunnel structure and replaced the clear sheet with a cooler option (720g white polythene), large access and side vents. Side ventilation is used to reduce heat when lambing sheep are brought in over the winter period.


Our sheep structures are one of the strongest on the market using 60mm diameter galvanised tubing and heavy duty foundation tubes, 2 piece hoops (much stronger than 3 and 4 piece hoops supplied by our competitors) and 5' hoop spacing's.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


What size structure do you need?...


Ensure sufficient space for lying and feeding. Competition for space can contribute to serious health and welfare problems as nutritional and social stresses increase in the run up to lambing.


The length of the forage feed face and trough space are more important than the overall space allowance, ensuring all stock have access to forage and concentrate without unnecessary struggling or competition.


Ewes that are lame, sick or affected by foot rot should be separated in to a hospital area. This allows for special attention and prevents any problems spreading through the flock.


Set up pens for ease of management in terms of cleaning, stock handling and movement.


Ensure water bowls/troughs are designed and located to minimise fouling and freezing.


Set up feed troughs so wasted feed can be removed easily and regularly.
