More Than Barns - Plains June/July 2018

These days, custom ag buildings often fill many roles.

An agricultural building is no longer just a barn. It's an equipment storage shed, warehouse, milking parlor, free stall barn, workshop, office, home or any combination of these. Whether you need a place for your machinery, your livestock or even your family, consider structures from the following manufacturers.
