Rob Taylor - Farmer
Farm Name: Plasnewyd, New Zealand
Stock units: 2500 lambs, 400 cattle
Size of farm: 230 hectares
“ Since using the Gallagher Sheep Auto Drafter I’ve been able to cut the labour used to weigh and sort sheep in half. When I used my old sorter it took two of us to put the sheep through. Now I can sort by myself and my worker is free to do other jobs around the farm”.
“Last week I put 1500 sheep through my Sheep Auto Drafter and only had to intervene 6 times to correct sheep flow into the unit. That’s only one manual intervention every 250 sheep.”
“At the moment I am able to run through 400 sheep an hour. With some slight adjustments to my Sheep Auto Drafter setup I’m confident I can get that number up to 600 an hour.”
