SHEARING TIPS

 

IT IS BEST TO SHEAR AT LEAST ONE MONTH BEFORE THEY LAMB. THE LESS WOOL THE EWES HAVE HANGING THE EASIER IT IS FOR THE LAMBS TO FIND THE TEATS. LAMBS ARE LESS LIKELY TO STARVE FROM SUCKING ON WOOL TAGS. 

SHEEP FAIR WELL IN COLD WEATHER BEING SHORN, AS LONG AS THEY HAVE SHELTER AND ARE FED WELL. i SHEAR MY OWN EWES IN DECEMBER FOR JANUARY AND FEBRUARY LAMABING AND IT COULD NOT BE A SMOOTHER TRANSITION.

MOST SHEEP AND FIBER GOATS ARE SHEARED AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR SOMETIMES TWICE. MOST LLAMAS AND ALPACAS REQUIRE SHEARING EVERY 2 YEARS, SOME MORE OFTEN.

ANIMALS SHOULD BE DRY AND NOT FED THE DAY BEFOE THE PLANNED SHEARING.
