In 2000, the CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research Centre released a startling study about the effects of climate change on livestock, noting that rising temperatures triggered a series of:
- Reduced feed intakes
- Reduced fertility rates
- Reduced activity levels
- Reduced productivity levels (including decreased milk and egg productions)
- Increased stress
These facts prove troubling for farmers, showcasing a need for more efficient protection. High temperatures – along with increased/reduced humidity, extreme drought/rainfall, and heavier carbon emissions – greatly affect animal productivity. Dome shelters, therefore, can be used to enhance the sustainability of the agricultural market.
Searching for a fabric dome? Taurus Fabric Build delivers a variety of options – each tailored to promoting a more effective husbandry environment.

Choosing Dome Shelters: Combating the Elements
Fabric dome systems are common within the commercial field, serving as effective storage and security alternatives. Those wishing to promote safer, gentler environments for their animals, however, can also reap the benefits. These options are ideal for farms and other agricultural ventures, offering:
- Vented Constructions – with optional raised rooflines delivering increased airflow and heat reduction.
- Increased Heat Resistance – with fabric constructions there is 100% UV blocking promoting considerably reduced temperatures.
- Increased Corrosion Resistance – with every custom dome shelter relying on galvanised steel or in extreme circumstance double galvanising or special powder coatings, to reduce the rust or corrosion generated in moist environments or from volatile corrosive substances being stored in extreme heat.
- Sound deadening – with fabric domes there is a natural reduction in the sound of heavy winds, rain, or hail (this alleviates animal stress levels).
- Shadowing reduced – the even light provided by the fabric gives a shadowless environment for animals to relax in.
Through these elements, a fabric dome system can more efficiently protect livestock against the changing climate and promote a more relaxed atmosphere. This translates to increased productivity.
Meeting Council Standards: Dome Shelters
All our Australian and European manufactured structures meet Australian compliance regulations. We always recommend clients to check with their authorities to ensure that there are not any local regulations which may be covered in the regional standards. We recommend to our clients to obtain building approvals prior to installation, as once installed and there is a complaint from a neighbour, building permits cannot be issued retrospectively. That means you have to pull your structure down, apply for a permit and then rebuild it.

The environment proves fickle – with temperatures rising, plummeting, and then reaching an occasional plateau. This causes anxiety in animals, affecting their physical and emotional well-being, reducing productivity with the potential for ill health. It’s essential, therefore, to counter climate change and stabilise productivity. Choose dome structures.
