Abstract

Hoop barns can be used successfully for raising sheep, horses, ostriches and other ratites, though they have traditionally been used for swine. The basics of hoop structure design for other livestock is similar to the structures for swine. Refer to the "Hoop Structures for Swine" article for details. Different animals have different requirements for their living environments. This information is aimed at directing attention and consideration for those animals in order to help distinguish their hoop structure needs form those of more traditionally hoop-housed livestock.
