Portable livestock shelters

 Portable livestock shelters are made of durable, lightweight materials that can be moved from place to place and easily installed by farmers. Animals such as cattle, goats and pigs can be accommodated in these shelters. The specification of materials may vary depending on the type and number of animals intended for shelter. Other benefits include easy conversion of shelters to another species, animal-friendly nature of materials, separate collection of excrement and urine, etc. The change in atmospheric temperature does not affect the materials. The shelter can be directly connected to biogas factories without exposing the waste to the environment, thereby preventing pollution, which is considered a major problem of livestock. The easy-to-clean nature of the shelter keeps animals in a more hygienic state avoiding stress. The convertible nature allows the shelter to be used for animals of various ages and stages of gestation.
