Shearers Seeking Employment
This annual shearing school has been offered to individuals seeking experience and knowledge about shearing, wool evaluation, and sheep production since 1977. In addition to teaching the skills of shearing and associated equipment information and care, students learn various aspects of wool marketing and production, and sheep husbandry.
The students that attend the WSSP Shearing School are not only providing a service to sheep producers in the Pacific Northwest, but they are also an important information resource and educator about proper shearing techniques and wool handling, and the care and marketing of the animals and their wool.
With a state-of-the-art sheep shearing trailer, a world class instructor in Mike McWilliams, over 500 head of sheep to shear, and over 20 years of experience, this is a world class commercial sheep shearing school.
