Shearing Schools Announce 2018-19 Dates

Shearing Schools Announce 2018-19 Dates

9/10/2018 11:24:00 AM/Categories: Popular Posts, General News, Ag Conferences, Livestock, Sheep

A handful of shearing schools have announced their dates for 2018 and 2019.

In addition to learning to shear in a hands-on manner, the schools offer teaching on equipment, animal welfare and staying in shape for the physically demanding task. Equipment is supplied, but students are often encouraged to bring any equipment they have, as well.

These schools offer training for a wide variety of students - from hobby farmers looking to shear their own flocks to those with aspirations of shearing professionally.
