"We run up to 3000 ewes on eastern fall high country in South East NSW. This is tough country where the weather can change at the drop of a hat. We shear ewes in May and lambs in January. We used to quite regularly have to shed sheep off shears if the weather turned bad. We have been using Thermoskin now for 4 years, our weather sheds are now redundant and there are no more late night dog trials. We would not consider shearing now without using Thermoskin. It is cheap insurance for us."

"Having seen the results at minus 5 degrees, I was able to sleep soundly knowing that I wouldn't have to get up in the middle of the night if a cold snap was coming."
Grogansworth, Bowning NSW
"The real difference Thermoskin makes is that the day after shearing, the sheep and goats are feeding at day break in frost, wind or rain. The result is animals are growing their fleece and gaining weight optimising joining potential, all from day one. And for us, it takes out the continuing stress over the weather."

"I found our sheep never lost weight after shearing. It had become cold and they did not run down into the gullys. They stayed around on the side of hills eating."

"Very efficient way to keep warm - one growers response 'I normally lose 3-4% of my 5,000 stock from cold snaps, after using Thermoskin, I only lost one animal'."
"I was a sceptic about Thermoskin but after seeing it work I had to turn around to Henry and say you are on to something here."
