Tony Manchester has been in the farming industry for over 60 years.

Located at Kingsvale, NSW, is the Manchester family farm, Roseville.

Since being on the property, Mr Manchester has seen an increase in fleece weight and several changes in the industry requirements.

To keep up, he knew it was time for an overhaul, ensuring everything from efficiency to safety was looked after.

Mr Manchester turned to the team at Clipex to get the job done.

He started with the Clipex Sheep Handler and progressing to the yards and loading system.

While the sheep industry is on a high, Mr Manchester and son John took the investment opportunity to try and get ahead of the game.

"We were in the position to do something about it so we grabbed the opportunity and went with it to make the whole operation around the property more efficient," he said.

"As an old fellow who has been struggling my whole life handling 60-70 kilogram rams it never worried me.

"But at my age, it is a bit of a battle now and it has taken a lot of the hard work out of it and is just so efficient in doing many jobs.

"We tend to do multiple jobs when we work with the Clipex Sheep Handler and it works very well.

"It's made a hell of a lot of difference as far as the handler goes."

The property has now been fit out with the Clipex Sheep Handler, an eight metre loading ramp and a full yard set to bring ultimate handling capability to the operation.

Clipex are offering industry solutions.

"Packed full of features, the Clipex Sheep Handler's compact fold out design gives three-way, fully automatic drafting," a company spokesman said.

"With automatic pre-catch and catch functionalities including Iconix load bars, its automated anti-backing technology keeps the sheep moving.

"Anyone who purchases a Clipex Sheep Handler like Mr Manchester's before March 31, Clipex will be making a $1000 contribution of materials to BlazeAid. We are hoping to raise a total of $500 000 in donated materials for bushfire affected farmers."
