Please Join us for the Spring Sheep Workshop on April 2, 2016. This year, we will be discussing Marketing farm flock wool in Minnesota. Please check out our events page for further details!
Shearing is happening on many sheep farms around the country. Shearing is one of the first steps in getting ready for the lambing season to come. There are many health and stress reasons to have the ewes sheared 2 – 4 weeks prior to lambing. In the picture: the “Shearer” is almost finished with this ewe, and the “Tipper” has the next ewe rumped and waiting. He will then bag the wool fleece.
Stay tuned as our Spring Workshop will be focused on Wool!
With the change in the weather and the start of school, it has us thinking about the need to look at the fall and winter wardrobe. With that comes to mind the upcoming Make It With Wool contest. The contest is a great place to show case articles made from wool. There are beautiful garments, quilts and novelty items that are entered. The contest is open to all ages. If you are interested in participating please go to the Make It With Wool page for more information!
