Clean those sheep anywhere on the farm

SHOWER sheep on any suitable site using a mobile sheep showering unit, says Dymond Sales.

The company claims its sheep shower, on pneumatic wheels, can be moved between sites with a tractor or four-wheel-drive vehicle. The wheels can be removed to lower the machine to ground level in just five minutes.

Underfloor nozzles allow debris to be washed away immediately, leaving the shower fluid as clean as possible, adds Dymond Sales, which reckons just 90 litres (20gal) of shower fluid is left to be disposed of after showering sheep.

A Dymond Sheep Shower with a draining pen and high-speed wheels costs £3750 (phone and fax: 01743-351400).
