37m Long x 21m Wide Yard Cover, Pt Kenney SA
Situated on the North-Western edge of the Eyre Peninsula, Venus Plains is a large Mixed Farming Enterprise consisting of over 7000 Hectares of Arable Farming land. Shearing approximately 10,000 Head of sheep a year, it would be fair to say that a big portion of the year is dedicated to maintaining the livestock. The property also runs a large scale Cropping Enterprise.Venus Plains approached Spanlift at the Eyre Peninsula Field Days looking for a structure to cover their existing yards. After several site visits, and many conversations a design that met Craig’s requirements was settled on.
As pictured above, the Sheep Yard Cover is a 37m Long x 21m Wide structure with large 9.5m bays. It was constructed over the top of the existing set of sheep yards and has been designed carefully to facilitate easy handling of the sheep. Column Placements ensure the layout is not affected in any way. Part of the design requirement was that the columns had to be manufactured to follow the fall of the land.
Discussing his new shed on handover Craig said:
“The sheep have never moved so freely through the yards until we had the cover constructed. The comfort of working in summer out the sun, but still getting a breeze through makes a huge difference compared to working in the open, as we’ve always done. Very happy with the finished product!” Craig Kelsh.
The newly constructed yard cover will serve Venus Plains for decades to come – we hope they enjoy working all year round in improved working conditions.
Whether it’s raining, too hot, or blowing a gale, a Yard Cover will protect you from the harsh climate we live in. It’s so much more than just a cover! The right design will increase your efficiency, safety and comfort year-round.
The curved roof ensures that the area is well ventilated, and the full-length high capacity gutters mean that the stormwater can be harvested with ease, via collection at one end.
