In 2022, we replaced the previous 40-year-old shearing shed with a brand new shearing shed facility that offers a fantastic space for shearing, wool classing and roustabout training. 

Equipped with state-of-the-art tools and equipment for shearing, the facility was funded through an $800,000 investment by the WA State Government as part of its Wheatbelt Recovery Plan and the Rebuilding our TAFEs package. It is primarily used for training in sheep shearing and wool handling, as well as for keeping our own flock of over 1,000 Merino and Dohne sheep looking their best. The shearing shed ensures participants are job ready to start an exciting career in Australia's growing wool industry, or on country as a shearer.
