Steel in agriculture

From a simple feeding pail to the most advanced fully mechanised milking equipment, stainless steel is found on farms in numerous applications, an excellent alternative to plastic, light metal and galvanised steel.
In a robust farming environment mechanical damage is difficult to avoid. For this reason, intrinsically corrosion resistant materials such as stainless steel have multiple advantages.

Stainless steel is commonly found in farm environments.

  • Fences, gates and partitions

  • Feeding

  • Watering

  • Electrical and mechanical equipment

  • Dairy farming

  • Ancillary equipment

  • Storage tanks for slurry and waste water

  • Corrosion resistance of the bulk material, easy- to-clean surfaces and outstanding formability make stainless steel a most cost-effective solution.
