Building for shearing

2009_0702shearingshed0004

We were lucky enough to be able to buy the inside of a shearing shed, complete with catching pens, grating, gates… the works.

Having two farms 18 kilometres apart and only a shearing shed on one of them, makes life quite difficult at times and involves stock trucks carting sheep backwards and forwards at shearing and crutching time. Time consuming, not to mention expensive!

We’re really pleased to be having this four-stand board put up on the inside of our machinery shed… so we’ll have a shearing shed on both places soon.

It’s a raised board shed so where Hayden and Rocket are standing, will be cemented and used as the floor where the rousies, classer work and the press stands.

It won’t be long before it’s put to use, with ewes needing crutching as soon as it’s finished.
