Giddy Up, Cowboy

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is coming to town on March 1 through 20, and we are already wearing our boots and spurs in anticipation. There will be roping, riding and yee-haws galore – a whole lot of Texas-sized entertainment to say the least. Between the Lil’ Rustlers Rodeo, the Livestock Show, cattle sales, the Horse Show and concerts from more than 20 of country’s biggest stars, the Livestock Show and Rodeo is not to be missed.

Don’t fret about the safety of your goods while you are away. Using shipping containers, you can store your heavy-duty equipment and keep it safe from the elements and human threats. If your livestock will be in tow, easily transform a cargo container into a mobile stall. Here are a just a few ways these containers can be used around the farm, ranch or in anticipation of the next rodeo.

Transporting Livestock

Shipping containers were initially created to carry goods across the seas. Their modular, sturdy structure makes them easily transported by flatbed truck or by train, and their design makes placement and load up simple. Because shipping containers are sealed watertight, aside from a front-facing hatch, a few custom cut outs need to be completed before your container is used for this purpose. Thankfully, Saf-T-Box offers a wide variety of customizations options that will fit any need.

Simple Storage

Shipping containers can be modified to store, protect and keep crops as fresh as possible before they’re sold into market. The great thing about these modified shipping containers is that they offer much more versatility than regular storage options. Modified containers can be used for agricultural preservation and protection as well as for equipment storage during periods of crop rotation or winter weather.

Barn House

You can rest assured knowing that your equipment and materials are safe and protected. Need a cool place for your cattle to escape from the summer heat? A remote space for making repairs to planting or harvesting equipment?
