10 Hacks for Winterizing Your Barn

Take these tips and do a run-through with them before the winter months are upon us. You will thank yourself in the long run when you realize that you already have precautions covered when that first storm sneaks up.

Stock up on feed and supplements. This way you can spend more time checking on animals and less time worrying about feed.

Foam pool tubes are your friends.  Pool noodles are great for quick insulation on pipes and hoses, plus they double as cord protection.

Fix what needs to be fixed before winter hits. If you notice a loose board, a crooked stall door or a tilted fence, fix it before winter hits. That way if something goes wrong, you won’t be grumbling out in the ice and snow. Doing these fixes now also gives you a chance to take a look around and see if there are going to be projects come springtime.
