Body

Self mustering of sheep by trapping on water is a management alternative which producers can use to reduce mustering costs, sheep stress and the amount of skilled labour required and to improve mustering efficiency. Self mustering requires control of stock waters, two -way spear trap gates and well planned and constructed facilities. The Bettini, Spring Hill and Charleville spear trap gates can be used in an effective sheep self mustering system.
