Tales from the Road: ClearSpan Goes to Canada Day 2

ASWA LocationSunday, August 17

I began my first full day in Toronto by getting to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre bright and early to ensure our booth was where it was supposed to be, along with our trade show materials. I could tell there wouldn’t be a problem thanks to the hundreds of APWA volunteers who all donned red, white and maple leaf-clad hockey jerseys. So far, so good!

Hay: How should you store it?

Storing Hay in a ClearSpan Fabric StructureAll livestock owners understand the importance of the hay they feed.

Proper storage of surplus hay and feed increases overall nutrient retention and ensures that your livestock are receiving complete nutrition from their feed. Read more

Brenda and David Webster contacted me back in Dec. 2013 to discuss the possibility of purchasing a riding arena for their business, Black Swan Farm, located in the rolling hills of central Ohio. Brenda owns two donkeys and a horse named Zip that she keeps at home. This past winter was particularly harsh, so she and David decided to purchase one of our 85’ wide structures for indoor riding. In March, we began design on the 85’W x 120’L gable style structure that included two end walls, doors, helical anchors and installation by our ClearSpan crew.
