The Art Of Blade Shearing With International Renowned Shearer Andy Wear

Fibreshed Stand B8B

Blade shearing is a more holistic form of shearing – with no mechanical heat or vibrations it is slower and less stressful for the sheep, with better quality wool being harvested. Extending the shearing season across 8 months of the year, welfare of the sheep brings added benefits. It is a subtle art form, blending three opposing fundamentals, the mind of the sheep, the mind of the shearer and a sharp blade! Andy will demo a sheep being shorn by blades, whilst providing a detailed explanation of the techniques involved and the intricacies of the requirements for wool harvesting!
