Kennebec Journal Covers UMaine Extension’s Sheep-Shearing Class
The Kennebec Journal reported on a sheep-shearing course in Washington, Maine that was sponsored by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and the Maine Sheep Breeders Association. Richard Brzozowski, agriculturist and small ruminant and poultry specialist with UMaine Extension, led the daylong intermediate course. Along with the hands-on experience, the six students in the class were given a manual, a “How to Shear Sheep” poster and DVD, the article states. “They keep learning after this,” Brzozowski said. WLBZ (Channel 2) reported on a class held in New Gloucester.
