Project Details

Project Type: Shearing Shed & Sheep Yard Complex

Location: Skipton, VIC.

Date: 2023

Size: 6 Stand Curved Board Shearing Shed & 3000 head working sheep yards


The iconic Banongil South property was purchased by the client, a stunning property located 18km south west of Skipton, VIC. The share of the property our client purchased did not have a shearing shed on the farm, and with the plans to increase the flock size considerably on the property, it was apparent that the investment had to made for on a new sheep yard and shearing shed complex.

The client came to Commander Ag-Quip, looking for a state of the art facility to cater for his shearing and sheep handling needs.

Having seen the previously completed project by Commander Ag-Quip at Lal Lal Estate, it was evident Commander Ag-Quip could be the team that brought his vision to life & deliver his new Sheep handling complex.
