West Wyalong and the Bland region is a rural area who’s primary businesses revolve around Sheep, Cattle and Crops such as Canola and Grain.
Whilst the traveller to West Wyalong may see many sheep in the paddocks they don’t usually get the chance to see the shearing aspect of a sheep station. So I have put together a few photos of a typical day in a shearing shed.
