Barn Loft Storage On Horse Farms

Many barns utilize the space just below the roof and above the stalls (the loft) for storing things.  Where the temperatures are moderate, lofts are usually large with room for large amounts of hay.  Where the temperatures are very high, there are no lofts or only partial lofts as this space is used for ventilation.  In other words a ceiling is not covering the stalls.  Further, any hay stored in a barn loft where temperatures exceed 100 F (38C) for most of the year will bake out the nutrients of the hay as well as possibly start a fire or cause spoilage.
