    Whether you’re operating a roadside farmer’s market or you’re a major commercial grower, investing in a high tunnel greenhouse can have a significant impact on your bottom line.

    These structures will expand your growing season, protect your crops, and improve your harvest – all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional commercial greenhouse. Commercial farmers across the United States are enjoying the benefits of high tunnel greenhouse growing. If you’re ready to join them, there are a few things you need to know.

    The following guide will take a deep dive into how a high tunnel greenhouse works, some of the top benefits, and the most important growing tips.

    What is a High Tunnel Greenhouse?

    A high tunnel greenhouse, also known as a cold frame greenhouse or a hoop building, is a large, unheated structure made from a steel frame and a translucent fabric cover. It doesn’t require a heater, fan, or other equipment designed to control the internal environment. Instead, they rely on insulation and solar heat to create warmth inside.

    When deciding on the right high tunnel greenhouse for your needs, you’ll want to pay attention to the quality of materials. It's also important to consider the dimensions of the structure versus the space you have...

  3. Why Buy New? Extend the Life of Your ShelterLogic Garage When You Replace Your ShelterLogic Garage Cover

    garage cover | shelterlogic replacement covers

    Did You Know You Can Replace The Garage Cover to Many ShelterLogic Products?

    When we develop products at ShelterLogic, we build them to last. However, season after season of use can wear down the covers of our garages, canopies, and more.

    For many of our customers who have ShelterLogic shade and shelter products that are out of warranty, it may not be necessary to buy an entirely new unit. But did you know you can replace your ShelterLogic garage cover, instead?

    Thanks in part to the feedback of so many of our customers, we have developed the ShelterLogic Replacement Cover program.

    This initiative allows past customers to order covers for their ShelterLogic products and extend the life of their shade or shelter. Rather than purchasing a brand new garage, customers can keep their old frame and purchase a new cover in the same or new color...

  4. Choosing Shelters for Horses: How to Find the Right Portable Horse Shelters

    Choosing Shelters for Horses: How to Find the Right Portable Horse Shelters
    When it comes to finding a shelter for your horses and livestock animals, it’s best to keep it simple. While it’s important to keep them sheltered and protected, it’s most beneficial to provide animals with the ability to move freely in and out of a structure that offers sufficient ventilation and cross breeze. Learn more about the best livestock shelter options for healthy and happy horses at home.

    Why a Barn Isn’t Always the Best Shelter Option

    When you picture a home for your horses, you probably expect they’ll need a large barn or enclosed stable to retreat to for sleep and shelter. And while these units are great for sheltering livestock after hours, they’re not adequate to keep animals out of the heat and sun during the daytime. In fact, constantly confining your horse in a stall such as this can be detrimental to their physical and mental health.

    Barns can easily become stuffy and unsanitary. Low ventilation exposes horses to dust and bacteria from their feces, feed, and bedding which leads to mucus and respiratory inflammation. Such confinement can have a negative impact on your equine’s colon and intestinal health because of their limited mobility much of the day. Even confining ponies can cause negative effects during growth and development, increase the risk of injury, decrease performance, and more.

    Even if your animals spend a lot of time outside their barn or stall, an expensive barn or enclosed structure isn’t always necessary. Horses, for example, naturally enjoy wide open spaces, and they tolerate both heat and cold fairly well. In fact, equine expert Nancy Ambrosiano explains, “Horses conserve body heat efficiently and, therefore, need less shelter than we think they do.” (Source: The Horse) These animals typically just take shelter from strong winds or for shade.

  5. Horse Health 101: The Importance of Livestock Shelter

    Horse Health 101: The Importance of Livestock Shelter
    Caring for horses or other livestock? Find out why a livestock shelter is crucial to maintaining animal and horse health, particularly in the summer season.

    How Hot Weather Affects Horse Health

    Horses cool off just like humans do – by sweating. Yes, it's true! Horses have sweat glands much like humans. Just like us, horses sweat when they generate energy. Unlike (many of) us, however, horses spend most of their time creating energy outside, which in turn generates heat. Since horses spend so much of their time generating heat outside, you can imagine why it's important that they be able to cool down easily and quickly.

    So if horses spend their time generating heat, how does the hot summer weather affect their health?

    Without an easy way to cool down, horses can overheat which can be detrimental to their health. In fact, when horses cannot effectively cool off, they begin to show signs of overheating through dark urine, reduction in skin elasticity, lethargic behavior, high body temperature, and other indicators. Once they display such symptoms or reach internal temperatures of 105 degrees are higher, it's important to cool your horse off immediately. If not taken care of, the risk of heat exhaustion, heat stroke, or even death greatly increases.

  6. Skin Cancer Prevention - The Benefits of Reliable Shade

    Skin Cancer Prevention - The Benefits of Reliable Shade

    As soon as the warmer weather hits, most people can’t wait to soak up the summer sun. However, significant sun exposure can often lead to premature skin aging, wrinkles, cataracts, and life-threatening skin cancer. Skin cancer is considered the most common type of cancer, and millions fall victim to this disease every year.  In fact, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. (Source: Skin Cancer Foundation) With such high risks, are you doing all you can to maximize skin cancer prevention?

    Skin Cancer Prevention: The Facts

    According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, increasing damage to the ozone layer greatly intensified the risk of harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure over the years. While ozone-depleting substances are now regulated to help minimize damage, scattered UV rays can still have an impact even on the cloudiest days.

    How does skin cancer occur?

    Everyday sunlight (regardless of clouds) omits UVA and UVB rays, which age the skin and cause sunburn. Too much radiation exposure damages your skin cell’s genetic materials, accelerating cell growth which then leads to skin cancer. Even getting a sunburn just once in a two-year time-span can triple your risk of melanoma. (Source: Cancer Research UK)
