Tasmanian Quality Meats

Tasmanian Quality Meats, one of the best Australian meat exporters, needed a protective solution to keep their animals out of the unpredictable Tasmanian weather in Cressy, Tasmania.

Scope

Allshelter was dedicated to providing Tasmanian Quality Meats with a shelter that met their every need. It needed to be designed to withstand a variety of elements. Since animal welfare is a top priority for Tasmanian Quality Meats, the shelter needed to make the animals comfortable in any type of weather.

How We Went About It

Allshelter collaborated closely with Tasmanian Quality Meats to provide a protective shelter that worked for the space and their needs. The protective solution needed to give the animals shelter, but also provide plenty of room to keep the animals relaxed.

Solution

To provide Tasmanian Quality Meats with the shelter that they needed, we provided a PMAG2028A. It is a post-mounted Agrishelter that is 20 meters wide and 28 meters long. Post-mounted Allshelter shelters are designed to be waterproof and to withstand winds of up to 300 km/h.

Outcome

Tasmanian Quality Meats was very satisfied with the protective solution provided by Allshelter. They loved that the shelter has easy side access, provides protection for their animals from Ultra Violet Rays, and is post-mounted for stability. Their spacious protective solution was roomy enough for their animals- with room to spare.

Testimonial

“I would like to thank the team at Allshelter for supplying us here at Tasmanian Quality Meats (TQM) with our new animal shelter, which has helped us in a big and most impressive way. The shelter aids in keeping our stock clean and dry, which in turn saves time and ultimately keeps costs down when it comes to the slaughter and dressing process. As Animal Welfare is a large part of our program at TQM, being able to hold our stock under a water proof and sun shade is critical. The shelter that Allshelter has provided is large enough that we can now keep 1600 sheep/lambs stress-free from the ever changing Tasmanian weather conditions. Not only are the relaxed animals out of the weather, our drovers and dogs can enjoy a more comfortable work environment as well, protected from the different elements. I am so impressed that I highly recommend Allshelter to anyone wanting to keep their belongings, stock, personal and valuable items under cover from the elements.” Colin Reid — QA Manager – Tasmanian Quality Meats

Marty Lourie

Marty Lourie approached Agrishelter looking for a weather protection shelter for storage and maintenance for their farm machinery so their equipment would not be left sitting out in the sun and rain, taking abuse from the elements.

Solution

Agrishelter worked closely with Marty to ensure the best utilisation of space and adequate clearances for machinery. A PMAG1736A – 17m wide x 36m long x 7.9m high post mounted shelter was designed, engineered and manufactured including 3.4 metre-high custom steel posts so that the full width of the shelter could be used. Agrishelter also did the delivery of the shelter.

Outcome

Thanks to the new shelter, it is easier to work in the natural light provided and there is no need to drive the machinery out to see what needs to be done. This saves a lot of time and energy for the farm. In addition the shelter is 10 degrees cooler than the other steel sheds that are located on the farm. The shelter also allows for the farm to drive-through, saving time as there is no need for backing out. The clear span openings make working in the shelter much easier as well. Marty has since referred many friends and neighbours to Agrishelter.

Arthur & Paul Gearon

At the Gearon family farm in Chinchilla, QLD they had several pieces of machinery without the shed space to allow the machinery to be stored away from the harsh weather. As a result, the machinery had to sit out in the rain and sun. Another problem was that they did not have the room in their shed to do proper work on their seeder with the wings down. In order to work on the seeder, they had to bring the machine out into the open. On days with less than perfect weather, this proved to be an issue. Having the seeder outside, along with their other equipment, resulted in weathering that caused parts on the machines to be replaced quicker than usual. This added an extra cost for the farm.
