Once seasonal lambing and breeding have been addressed many sheep operations will turn to the act of shearing. This is an essential element of maintaining the animal. At the same time, it can also be a significant source of incoming revenue.
Here at D-S Livestock Equipment headquartered in Frostburg Maryland, we understand that efficiency and effectiveness in this process are critical. To that end, we offer a variety of quality handling systems. Each can be varied to meet the shearing needs and scale of your operation.
Our System A includes our TS900 sorter with stop, it includes our RS1000 raceway support with a DP1 Drop Gate. It also incorporates an anti-backup arm and two 8-foot solid fold-down panels. The entire unit is linked together with 8 strong linking rods.
The System B includes many of the same components, yet it is larger. It also includes a sturdy rope tie bar as well as an 8-ft swing slide gate and three 8-ft solid curved tub panels.
For larger sheep shearing operations sour System E includes additional panels to provide you with a pen capable of holding many animals. This system also incorporates our 2G Turn O’Matic with end gates to help with other animal treatments that need to be performed. This can also help with efficient sorting.
