Medium Borderland Shelter
BDL203 3.6m x 2.5m x 2.1m high
Our goats Bonnie and Kylie love the calves shed. We have found the shed strong, well made and easy to erect (Marriage is still intact) and exactly what we needed on our farm-let.
We purchased the Outpost Small Borderland Shelter and it arrived very promptly within the week to our rural lifestyle block without any dramas. The instructions were very clear for complete novice builders, with all items required provided; step by step instructions and diagrams enabling complete novice builders to complete the building within the day without any issues.
We stood back proud of our well-built structure and awaited the arrival of our calves. The structure provided complete shelter from the very strong prevailing south west wind to our calves who arrived at 10 days old. They were tucked up in their warm, dry, cosy home on a nice thick bed of untreated Macrocarpa Chips.
We were under the guidance of a very kind neighbouring dairy farmer who was amazed at how stress free, healthy, and happy our calves were inside their Outpost Small Borderland Shelter just eating and sleeping despite the raging storms, wind and rain outside. In fact he asked if Outpost had a bigger model as he was looking for a new calf shed for his farm.
The calves never had a single set back and the Outpost Small Borderland Shelter made the care of them so easy. Every week, (for the first 4 weeks), moving of the shed with the quad bike was simple and provided a clean dry piece of land for the calves to remain on inside their shelter. Once the calves spent more time outside than inside we only move the Shelter once a month to provide them a clean, dry base and allow the grass under the Shelter to regenerate. Neighbours stop to watch the “calves running around the paddock with such joy and energy, enjoying life as calves should”. However, the moment the rain is heavy or the cold south west wind gets stronger, 17 weeks later they still make their way back to the Outpost Small Borderland Shelter and tuck themselves up for a snooze. We plan to purchase and build a second Outpost Small Borderland Shelter.
