Fleeces Off

June 2 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Workshop with the Inter Island Sheep Breeders Association

For sheep producers.

Fleeces Off: How to make the most of your wool.
Your sheep produce a fleece every year – how can you realize some profit from that product? Through lectures, discussions, and hands-on demonstrations, learn what makes a fleece valuable and what characteristics can reduce that value. We’ll share practical tips for husbandry and breeding practices for wool quality, wool handling, and skirting and basic cleaning. We’ll also talk about the current state of processing on the Island and places you can market your wool.
