Dipping sheep

These men are dipping sheep on the Longbeach estate in Canterbury. Longbeach was one of the finest farms in New Zealand by the 1890s. Thousand of acres had been drained and developed. It grew grain and fodder crops, and bred and fattened sheep, cattle and pigs. The owner, John Grigg, also established a dairy farm on the property.
