Build date: February 2021

Features of this impressive project include:

  • A six-stand curved board and timber wool handling area by ProWay.
  • Capacity on grating for 770 sheep. The 1500mmm grating height provides convenient access for cleaning out underneath the grating area.
  • The roof over the existing yards has the west wall clad and sliding doors incorporated which can be used for easy access and to control the airflow through the cover.
  • Translucent sheeting in the south gable end creates excellent natural light through both the shed and the yard cover.
