SHEEP WASHING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 11 January 1868

SHEEP WASHING. On the afternoon of Tuesday, the 7th instant, we had an opportunity afforded us of witnessing the process of washing sheep by means of warm and cold baths, which Mr. B. Dowling, of Victoria, a gentleman of considerable squatting ex perience, is endeavoring to introduce into this colony. The process is almost uni versally adopted by our Victorian neigh bors ; and we understand that on one station alone — that of Messrs. Wilson Brothers, on the Wimmera— no less than 200,000 sheep were cleansed by this method last season. The squatters of this colony have not been unacquainted with it, and by one of them, Mr. J. H. Angas, it has been tried, and very suc cessfully, for it was with, fleeces washed in this way that he took the wool prize at the late exhibition held in honor of H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh. The principal objection to its general adop tion appears to have been raised by several gentlemen largely connected with the squatting interests in the north, who held th...
