Wyoming sheep shearing school set for Burlington
Students went to school this fall. So will sheep.
A sheep shearing school is Oct. 25-27 in Burlington, WY, for those interested in learning new and proper shearing techniques. The class is available to all levels of shearers.
“For those who have been shearing a long time, it will help them shear faster and cleaner,” said Dallen Smith, a University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service educator for Big Horn County. “The class also has good techniques and a basis for beginners.”
Montana extension agents Mike Schuldt and Jim Moore will teach the classes. Schuldt and Moore recently spent six weeks in New Zealand learning proper shearing techniques.
“I’m taking it myself to learn some techniques that might help me do a better job,” said Smith. “You can learn something from anybody; you’re just putting a few more tools in that toolbox that you can use.”
There is a $100 registration cost for the class. Preregistration is required.
For more information or to register, contact Smith at email@example.com or at 307-765-2868.
