Beyond the Bale : March 2016
ON FARM 55 Have you got any interesting photos that you’d like to share with other readers of Beyond the Bale? We are always keen to see and hear what people working with Australian wool are up to. If you want to share any photos with us, please email the image and a brief description to the editor of Beyond the Bale Richard Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. The photos could portray any feature, be it humourous or poignant, informative or provoking, gritty or beautiful. Here are a few photos that we have recently received from readers. PHOTOS! READERS’ WIN!!! One of Australia’s finest photographers, Andrew Chapman, embarked on a passionately ambitious project to record woolsheds in every state, capturing the grand as well as the everyday. This is an invaluable historical record of an Australian icon. The 216-page hardback book is also available to purchase for $39.95 (plus postage) from Andrew’s website www.andrewchapmanphotography.com and good bookshops. YARD WORK AT MERRIMBA STATION ‘Merrimba’ near Warren in NSW is owned by the Paraway Pastoral Company and managed by Jack Brennan. Spanning 19,057 hectares, the property runs 8,000-10,000 ewes but usually around 16,000 to 20,000 sheep – which makes yard work a big job. HEADING HOME Julie Russell of Wickepin in Western Australia sent in this photo of a mob of nearly 500 of their 3,900 Merinos heading back to their paddock in the early morning after being shorn and sprayed with a lice treatment, a drive of approximately five kilometres of which part is along this narrow roadway section through creek-land lined with mature York Gum, Jam and Salmon Gum trees. MAKING THEIR WAY TO WATER Kelly Kirkland of Balaklava in South Australia sent in this photo she took a couple of years ago on her property ‘Kiraba’. Photographed early one morning, it was the beginning of a hot day during summer and taken as a mob of Merino ewes made their way to water. THE NEXT GENERATION Bernadette Bodel and her husband from Ganmain in Riverina of NSW sent in this photo of their 10-year -old daughter Antonia Purcell in their shearing shed, with their dog Belle and her pup Jax. If you submit a photo that gets published in Readers’ Photos, you’ll receive an autographed copy of Andrew Chapman’s ‘ Woolsheds’.
