Spring Sheepshearing Schools Planned

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

The University of Maine Cooperative Extension and the Maine Sheep Breeders Association are planning three hands-on sheepshearing schools in southern Maine in April and May, 2013 to address an increasing need for skilled shearers, as the sheep market grows nationwide.

Please note: Due to a high interest level, registration for both the spring 2013 Blade Shearing School and the Beginning Sheep Shearing School to held Saturday, April 20 at Wolfe’s Neck Farm in Freeport has closed.

Please also note: Due to low enrollment the Beginner Sheep Shearing School B to be held on Saturday, May 4 in Littleton, Maine has been canceled.
