Steel Agricultural Building in Oklahoma
Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., was the proud manufacturer and supplier of this pre-engineered metal building in Owasso, Oklahoma, in March of 2008.
Ever since, the rugged, hardwearing metal building has served as a hog barn for the Owasso FFA, a high school student-led agricultural education organization with more than 150 members. An addition to an existing barn already onsite, this steel building gives Owasso FFA members more room to house animals and adds another 35 hog pens to the space. In operation for more than 90 years, the Owasso FFA helps local students hone skills both inside and out of the classroom, and this particular steel barn houses hogs used in shows and related efforts and events.
