American Sheep Industry Association polls interest in wool handling or classing schools
November 19, 2010
Are you interested in attending an informational wool course? If so, let the American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) know your interest.
ASI offers two different schools: a four-day wool-certified classing school and a two-day wool handling school. Both classes are comprised of classroom learning in addition to time spent handling wool.
The certified classing school is designed for sheep producers with wool-focused genetics in their flock. Technical information on wool production, genetics, nutritional influences as well as an opportunity to skirt and class a wide variety of fleeces is covered. The cost of the course is $100.
The more general wool handling school provides more general information about wool marketing and preparation with a broad-based view of the wool industry. A fee of $25 is requested for the handling course.
For more information regarding these classes or to show interest in one of the courses, contact ASI at 303-771-3500 or e-mail Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
