Thanks for sharing those links - in particular, the "Rates" link - describing all the individuals involved in a shearing session, along with their pay scales. (I'll have to look for the rates for the "tar boy" :-) )

The cooks get paid well - I'm surprised they aren't mentioned in the song. Were they a factor in the late 1800's or early 1900's?
