Dr Simon Lott advocated and promoted shade for high risk cattle in feedlots when shade was non-existent in feedlots and the industry resisted its implementation. Today, shade, is an everyday inclusion in feedlot design and operations.

Nowadays there are many proprietary suppliers of shade. Most are competent. It is important that you get the design outcome right so that money is not wasted. For independent advice on shade design and management contact EnviroAg Australia.
