Cow Sheds

The boom in New Zealand's dairy industry has increased the demand for high-quality structures that meet the needs of modern farmers.


Steel Shed Systems has plenty of experience in designing and building milking and feeding platforms to suit individual site, and herd requirements. Choose from one of our tried and tested existing designs, or talk to us about how we can accommodate your own unique needs.

Our pre-engineering process removes the guesswork from your design and sets up a realistic budget. We can keep things simple, or give you cleverly-designed, partitioned spaces to provide separate clean and secure dairy, plant and office areas - it's all down to your own requirements.


As with all our buildings, any cow shed we build you is made to last, surpasses all national building code requirements, and is designed to survive the harshest foreseeable New Zealand weather conditions.
