Council tested the difference between under the cattle yard roof and the sheep yards at 2:30pm last Thursday there was nearly 20 degrees difference between the two areas (under the roof being much cooler) another test is being done tomorrow so it will be interesting to see what the difference is.
Agents are using it as a marketing tool and for promotion of the facility! Lots of discussion about it in the farming community & for animal welfare
We also have got comments back from one of the feedlot buyers “very impressed and he intends to source most of his weaners from Naracoorte in future” - so hopefully good for both you and us into the future!
Sounds like people are really starting to appreciate the roof on these warm days!
