Shearing Shed Design

Monday, October 28, 2019


Shearing contractor and woolgrower, Hilton Barrett combined with Australian Wool Innovation to design a shearing shed which addresses worker safety and animal welfare considerations, while also achieving improved shed efficiency and good wool quality outcomes.

The design was developed following extensive industry consultation and reviews of existing working sheds. Further design refinements were made following multiples trials.

This design provides positive outcomes for the shearing team, the wool producer and the sheep.
