NDSU Extension livestock specialist John Dhuyvetter explains the advantages of using hoop barns to finish cattle. Hoop style buildings are gaining popularity for reducing the effect of environment on feedlot cattle. Cattle performance can be better since wind and snow protection is provided in the winter and shade in the summer with hoop barns. Since these barns are bedded, nutrients in the manure are captured in the bedding and provides an excellent medium for composting.
