Will a FastCover Building work for my Livestock Barn?

FastCover fabric buildings are an excellent choice for livestock barns and for many applications on your farm. The buildings offer tremendous natural light and improved ventilation which can lead to more content, healthier animals.  The buildings are also a wise choice for hay/feed storage and farm equipment storage.

Maximized Space

Clear span space. Half-round design concept. High ceilings. No interior columns.

Energy Efficiency

FastCover buildings require fewer light fixtures to properly illuminate the space, reducing utility costs.

Long Lasting Quality

All FastCover single and engineered truss structures come with an industry leading 15 year pro-rated warranty.

Natural Light

Animal comfort is an important factor in health and production and the bright interior of a FastCover building provides daytime lighting that reduces the need for electricity and increases the comfort level of your herd.  The fabric covers on our building allow for a high amount of light transfer resulting in a soft, nearly shadow-free interior, even on cloudy days.  When daylight is no longer available to light your barn, the bright white underside of the covers helps to reflect and disperse artificial lighting often requiring both fewer lights and using less electricity to light your barn.


FastCover livestock buildings feature a large air volume and high ceiling heights.  With the installation of proper vents, warm moist air is drawn up and exhausted out the vents, replaced with fresh air.

Wide Open Clear Span Space

There are no internal columns or low level bracing or supports to get in the way of movement or placement of pens, equipment, fencing, or feed bunks.  You can configure your barn however necessary to manage your operations. A clear span building can be built to any length so it is also possible to design a dual purpose with animal housing at one end of the building and storage for hay/feed or equipment maintenance at the other end.  Whether utilizing the building as a cattle shelter or protecting and storing your crops and feed, a Fast Cover Building offers year round shelter and the wide open access you need.

Long Lasting Quality

All FastCover truss components are powder coat painted providing a protective smooth finish that creates a long-lasting barrier that helps to prevent any premature wear in corrosive environments. Our NovaShield II membrane fabric building covers will not rust. Read about our 13 year warranty.

Temperature Moderation

The fabric covers do not radiate heat and cold the same way as other building materials such as metal.  The non-conductive properties of the covers help to keep the building feeling cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.  When used as an animal shelter, this temperature moderation provides a more comfortable, low stress, environment.


These are the benchmarks that have made FastCoverTM a recognized industry leader.
