Dikes are important coastal flood protection structures. Sheep help maintain dikes by keeping the grass short, which makes the blades thicker, the grassroots more compact, and stabilises the soil.
THE TOIL ON THE DIKE IS ALL ABOUT PROTECTING THE GRASS – GOOD THING THE GATORS HAVE LOW-PRESSURE TYRES THAT PERFORM GREAT ON HARD AND SOFT GROUND.
TAKING CARE OF THE FLOCK
Making sure that the sheep can do their “maintenance work” means building and maintaining pasture fences and transporting sick animals in any weather. The Gator’s heated cab is a cosy workplace yearround.
THE DAYS ON THE PASTURE CAN GET LONG AND HARD. THANKS TO THE THOUGHTFUL PASSENGER CAR ERGONOMICS OF JOHN DEERE GATORS, THEY’RE LESS FATIGUING AND SAFER.
