Necessity begets farmer to develop wool crutching machine

Jan '10
It is said that necessity is the mother of inventions and an Australian wool farmer has proved it to be true. To counter the shortage of workers, the wool farmer has developed a mechanical device to crutch wool.

Crutching refers to the removal of wool from around the tail and between the rear legs of a sheep. It also refers to removing wool from the heads of sheep or from the bellies of male sheep.

According to the wool farmer, the machine selects sheep, picks them up and delivers them in position and is ready for crutching, which reduces human intervention to the minimum and also foresees possibility of being used by shearers in future.
