Animal Housing

Animal housing is the term used to describe animal’s shelter and bedding. It usually refers to shelter for outdoor animals, particularly farm livestock, including chickens, ducks, pigs, sheep, spring lambs, fall lambs, winter lambs, beef cattle, dairy cattle, broilers, and laying hens. Correct animal housing plays a key-role in animal welfare and their ability to make produce (such as milk or eggs). Animal housing is often referred to as animal pens, folding, sheepfold, sheepcote, paddocks, cattle pen, crates, cages, corrals, stalls or stables. Animal housing is used by farmers and horticulturists to ensure the correct comfort and shelter for farm animals.
