SHEPHERD & EWE
EFFICIENT SHEEP HOUSING & HANDLING SOLUTIONS
Shepherd and ewe products are designed with the user in mind, designed by farmers for farmers. We specialise in the design and manufacture of sheep housing and handling equipment. Our products are designed to improve labour efficiency and provide a healthy and happier working environment for both the shepherd and sheep.
Good facilities allow you to expand production and increase income. They also lead to a better quality of life for the farm family by reducing the workload and the drudgery of everyday tasks. In the year 2000 Teagasc surveyed labour use on 30 sheep farms with an average flock size of 352 ewes. The labour input was 36% higher on farms that had poor sheep housing when compared to those with good. The key message from this survey is the same today, good housing and handling facilities means less work.
