And so it begins...

Saturday saw the first shearing job of the season over at Strathalbyn. A gentle start to the year with 41 animals at three farms.

The way it’s looking it seems likely that we’ll clear 2000 head this year for the first time at well over 100 properties in South Australia (and a handful in NSW on the way back from a trip).

I always have mixed feelings about shearing – it’s hard work and it takes us away from the property where there’s so much to do but, on the other hand, there’s no better way to get out and about, meeting owners and seeing a huge range of animals and farming operations.
