With shearing starting just a day after competition, it’s all go in a new shearing shed in the State’s south, designed with workers, sheep and profits in mind.

The town of Kojonup is the site of WA’s first woolshed built to an Australian Wool Industry (AWI) design which addresses worker safety and animal welfare considerations while achieving improved efficiency and good wool quality outcomes.

The design was released following collaboration between AWI and shearing contractor and woolgrower, Hilton Barrett.
