Handling Ice And Snow At The Barn

Handling Ice And Snow At The Barn

Along with the thick of winter comes plenty of ice and snow.

While there are few things more beautiful and picturesque than a farm covered with fresh snow, it’s important to know how to deal with ice and snow removal to make sure that the property is safe and efficient for everyone.

Here’s some tips and tricks for handling ice and snow at the barn:


Handling Ice And Snow At The Barn

De - Ice With Sand, Not Salt

While salting can be effective for clearing ice and snow residue from walkways and drives, it can be corrosive to concrete and harmful to animals. 

Use sand to add traction to any high-traffic area that you want to ensure will not be slippery or dangerous.

For areas around the farm that are very icy, consider investing in an animal and environment-friendly de icer like Safe-Paw

Make sure that snow is shovelled away before it has the chance to ice over, or before more snow falls over the top.

You’ll be saving yourself time, effort, and resources; powdery fresh snow is much easier to shovel away than heavy or icy snow.

Putting down a layer of sand or safe salt after you’ve finished is a great way to keep it from accumulating back up too fast.

Make sure to keep the barn stocked with plenty of shovels to help in the case that one may break or become lost- once the snow starts to fall, a snow shovel is truly a thing of value!

Of course, the easiest and best way to remove snow around the property is ploughing.

Investing in a snow plough can save you loads of time and energy that would previously be dedicated to spending hours outside shovelling. 

Thankfully, if you’ve invested in the Paddock Blade, you not only have an incredible paddock cleaning tool and a powerful trailer-you have a fantastic ploughing tool, as well.

Simply hook the Paddock Blade to your towing-capable vehicle of choice and tow it behind you as you drive to collect the snow and clear a path in seconds.

Genuine reviews from very happy people

Received in quick time. Does exactly what it should do, just got to get the speed right. Any little bits missed I simply let dry out and chain harrow over. Very impressed. Could do with a tractor sized version though! Thank you for an excellent product

Paul Evans

Upon receiving the paddock blade, I have been nothing but impressed saving huge amounts of time and keeping the yard to the highest possible standard.
I recommend and congratulate Paddock Blade UK for bringing this amazing tool into Horse management.

Roland Tong

Great bit of kit, works well in our paddocks. Looking forward to riding in all the spare time I’ll have not poo picking! Video in comments of it in action!

Ruth Jacobs

I was so dubious that this would work for me. I have very bumpy rig and furrow fields. I’m pleased to say I was wrong. I had to go over the field a number of times but I have a clear field and a huge pile of droppings.

Can’t wait to use this each week to ensure my fields are kept poo free!

Helen Chester

Excellent purchase Received in quick time! Our fields are not flat and we have had no issues. Very impressed I will never use a wheel barrow again.
Thank you for an excellent product and excellent customer service.

Received our paddock blade on Friday and honestly couldn’t be more thrilled with it. It’s easy to use, does a fabulous job and really couldn’t recommend it enough! To top it off the entire process was hassle free too.

Rhian Mullis

Top quality item and excellent customer service. Oh and you can do a 2 acre field that hasn’t been done in a month (or two) in under an hour!

Jon Davis

Awesome piece of kit and don’t know how we have gone so long without one.

Victoria Wallace

Paddock blade – one of the best tools ever. Easy to use, easy to tow, makes light work of the fields. Saves tonnes of time, picks up every bit and even levels the field out while it’s going. Highly Highly recommend.
