Suppliers and Resources

These are suppliers we have worked with and been very pleased
with their products and their service


Shaul's Manufacturing
Livestock Handling Equipment

Specializing in sheep and livestock handling equipment; chutes, pens, feeders, panels, gates, stands, squeezes, stockracks. Their light weight panels are especially useful around our barnyard and are the closest thing we have found in the US to the hurdles of the UK. Also custom work, reasonably priced and very customer oriented. They will ship anywhere in the country, but for those of us on the west coast they come to many of the shows and will deliver equipment at shows and even sometimes at stops along the way (if it is on their route), free of charge.

Dalton ID Systems
The Dalton Minitag is the smallest ID tag we have ever found, at 3/4 of an  inch it is ideal for day old Soay lambs (although it was designed for rabbits). As of yet we have not found a source for them in the USA (they are not available on the Dalton.thetags4u.com website) and you must call them directly.in the UK.  If keeping track of the genetics of your sheep is important to you  they are  worth the  price and the hassle. While only intended for use as baby tags they generally last the life of the sheep and are often a quick way in the field to identify a sheep's farm of origin.
