NEW SHED DESIGN | DESIGNED FOR INDUSTRY BY INDUSTRY | TRIED AND TESTED BY SHED STAFF

Over the past 18 months, shearing contractor Hilton Barrett, with the support of AWI, has been through a rigorous process to create an innovative shearing shed design. Through extensive consultation with shearers, wool handlers, classers and woolgrowers the shed designing process addressed the below criteria and their relationships:

  • efficiency for workers and the flow of livestock
  • worker safety
  • quality wool preparation
  • animal welfare

Having built a shearing shed based on this design, Hilton Barrett will be opening his shed doors to all those interested to see it. Due to the high level of interest, you are invited to visit our second Open Day to hear from and speak with those involved in the project and discuss the design and functionality.
