Beyond the Bale : June 2016
ON FARM 55 Have you got any interesting photos that you’d like to share with other readers of Beyond the Bale? If so, please email the image and a brief description to the editor of Beyond the Bale Richard Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here are a few photos that we have recently received from readers. PHOTOS! READERS’ WIN!!! If you submit a photo that gets published in Readers’ Photos, you’ll receive an autographed copy of Andrew Chapman’s ‘Woolsheds’. This 216-page hardback book is an invaluable historical record of an Australian icon. It is also available to purchase from www.andrewchapmanphotography.com and good bookshops. WOOL MAKING ITS MARK IN AFL AFL club presidents at the launch of the 2016 AFL season, all wearing their 100% Australian Merino wool club scarves developed as part of AWI’s Fibre of Football campaign. SMOKO! Andrea Mitchell of ‘Kilpa’ at Savernake in the southern Riverina region of NSW sent in this photo of her daughter Sophia on a smoko while droving sheep 20kms from their property to agistment. INNOVATIVE SHEARING CONVEYORS Geoff and Helen Wurst’s ‘Wurralea’ shearing shed at Laura in South Australia’s Mid North region, with travelling shearing conveyors shown in front of the shearing stands. They are designed to ease the burden on backs, taking shorn fleece from the shearer and ready to throw on the table for classing. PEEKABOO! Liz Blechynden at Boyup Brook in the south-west of WA sent in this photo of an inquisitive ewe that ended up in a strainer-post hole that had just been dug. The ewe didn’t look concerned and, after a lot of heaving, was safely returned to her usual ‘above ground’ position! COOL WOOL! Alice von Pein of 'Bellalie' at Kogan in the Darling Downs region of Queensland sent in this cool photo of her pet sheep Claire who is now grown up and has just had her first lamb.
