Chemicals in a woolshed.

Part of the photo below contains this is image of

a 20 litre drench (rectangular) drum and a 5 litre back pack.

Drench (or medicine) helps keep sheep and cattle healthy…internally,

which then has a flow on effect of external well-being as well.

 

There are several types of chemicals available to keep animals

in their best productive condition. 

Some people say that farmers do not care for their animals. 

Quite untrue! 

Without healthy sheep/animals one’s income drops significantly. 

So why would any business want that? 

Every year I would spend nearly $3,000 on the health

of my animals, which equates to about $3 per adult sheep.  

And that figure is only the cost and does not labour 

 or my budget for extra, high-protein supplements.

I think and it has been confirmed, that…

this dress could be called a deb(utante) frock.

This flock of sheep and herd of cattle…

are certainly livestock.

In a few weeks time (June) this was

a sight I looked forward to…

 as it meant an income for future years.

Some years, though, it was heart breaking

especially if the weather was nasty…cold

and wet…lambs often died before they stood up.

This was also part of my farming life until the 1983 drought.

After that year it was decreed that sheep had bellies

which were much easier to fill than cattle,

especially in a drought year.

Sheep also did less damage to fences

than hungry, or not hungry, cattle did.

Goodbye cattle.
