Barns are essential for farming and agriculture. They are versatile structures that can be used for storing equipment, housing livestock, and as a workspace. Farmers traditionally built barns with wood because it was the most readily available and affordable option. However, advances in steel technology have made metal barns the most popular choice. Metal barns are more versatile, durable, and safer than wood barns. 

The Safety Factor

Steel is a safer option than wood when constructing farm buildings. Wood breaks down over time and is susceptible to rot, high winds, severe weather conditions, and insect infestations. Wood structures are also a potential fire hazard.
