Raising Sheep for Wool – Shearing & Processing – Virtual Field Day

By Practical Farmers of Iowa

Wool production can be a profitable enterprise with certain niche markets.

Learn what happens to wool fleece before it’s turned into yarn. Watch Regina and shearer Emily Chamelin-Hickman on shearing day. In this virtual field day, they show us how they prepare for shearing to create a smooth and safe process for everyone involved. See how a fleece is skirted and prepared before moving to the next step!

In partnership with Iowa Sheep Association: This virtual field day was recorded on December 15, 2020.
