Start in the classroom and learn about the basic technique of shearing, why and when you should be doing it.
Watch Farmer Tim demonstrate how to shear and then roll the fleece. He’ll share his tips of the trade and show you how to avoiding cutting the sheep and injuring yourself. Then it’s your turn, Tim will be on hand to give you all the help and advice you need.
You’ll spend the afternoon perfecting your technique. If you’ve got sheep at home, you should be ready to take the plunge and do them yourself by the end of the day.
We’ll finish the day with tea and cake and the opportunity to ask any further questions.
A really great day! Feel prepared to have a go at my sheep now. Tim & Bron were both great: very informative and encouraging.
You're never too old to learn! Thank you for your patience, assistance and expertise.
Informative & relaxed, the perfect way to learn. Great organisation and structure to the day. Loved every minute.
