Shade Haven recently introduced its newest portable shade model. The SH600 offers a smaller, more affordable option for farms with smaller herds of cattle as well as goats, sheep, chickens, alpacas and other livestock.
“We are thrilled to offer a third portable shade option to livestock farmers and rotational graziers around the globe,” said Shade Haven CEO Peter Bergquist.
The SH600 is a smaller version of the company’s flagship model, the SH1200. It’s constructed with a heavy-duty steel frame and knitted polypropylene shade canopy that collapses for easy transport with a truck, tractor or four-wheeler. When open, the shade structure provides 600 square feet of shade, ideal for herds of 20 to 30 cattle.
Adding mobile shade for pastured and rotationally grazed animals reduces the risk of heat stress, increases milk production and fertility, and allows farmers to control the distribution of nutrients throughout the pasture.
Shade Haven structures have become an integral part of grass-based livestock operations throughout the U.S. and the world. The company has expanded their products to serve events and industry applications, providing shade protection at events, festivals, trade shows, and construction sites.
