Design a sheep yard

Like the investigation above, students investigate what happens when we understand how good yard design depends on a good location/site, operator safety, and a set of functional yards that allow for safe and efficient handling if stock for drafting and loading out, as well as restraining stock for procedures such as drenching, vaccination, ear tagging, artificial insemination and pregnancy testing. In this unit the focus is on sheep!
