Wyoming sheep shearing school set near Emblem

Sharpening shearing skills and harvesting wool to provide the most value to producers is the focus of a three-day sheep shearing school near Emblem, WY.

The school is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, Oct. 12-14, at the 7K Ranch northeast of Emblem. Registration deadline is Monday, Oct 3. The $125 fee pays for instructor costs, maintenance of shearing machines and course materials.

The school is for beginners looking to get into the business as well as experienced shearers who want more instruction, said Dallen Smith, University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service (UW CES) educator based in Big Horn County.



“If the students have an interest in shearing just a few head or if they want to start up their own businesses and shear 500 head a day, the instructors will give them the resources to do so,” he said.

The class is designed to teach how to shear sheep while maintaining wool quality. Instructors will also show how to care and maintain the hand piece and how to sharpen combs and cutters.



The school is sponsored by UW CES. For more information, contact Smith at 307-765-2868.
