Shearing board, Burrawang station. Burrawang began in 1836 as a squatters' run and by 1866 it covered more than 2000sq.km between Forbes and Condobolin in central-western NSW. The station became legendary for its record wool clip (5000 bales in 1884) and its enormous shearing shed, which employed more than 250 men. The station was the scene of a labour dispute during the depression of 1893.
