Sheep Shearing for Beginners

Date/Time Location Course facilitator
18 Jun 2022 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM Upperstone Farm Danehill Mark Wickins

This is a hands on practical workshop for people who would like to learn how to shear sheep.  There will be a maximum of 4 students on this workshop, so Mark can teach both hand shearing as well as electrical shearing if this is what attendees would like.  He will also teach you how to roll fleeces and how to dag animals.  As there as so few people on this workshop there will be ample time for each person to have a go. 

This course is for those who are competent at handling sheep. You must have a good level of fitness and stamina due to the physical nature of the course.


Mark is not quite sure where his sheep will be on 18th June and if there is going to be rain we will need to be under cover, so more details later, but it will be near Danehill.



This event is fully booked.
