Getting Your Barn Ready for Hail, Ice and Blizzards
Check with your municipality regarding their policy on winter road closures and accessibility by feed trucks.
If you have animals housed in an off-site barn, plan how to get to the barn for feeding if the roads are closed (e.g. snowmobile, contact someone at or nearer to the barn site, etc.).
Prevent access to areas under roofs where snow could fall and cause injury. Consider ice breakers or ice guards for steel roofs to protect personnel from the possibility of falling ice and snow hazards.
