2018 Tennessee Sheep Shearing School  

Learn to Shear

The 2018 Tennessee Sheep Shearing School will be on April 20 and 21, 2018, at the Tennessee Livestock Center on the Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) campus in Murfreesboro.  The school is sponsored by the Tennessee Sheep Producers Association, the University of Tennessee Extension Service and the MTSU School of Agribusiness.

The shearing school is designed for either beginner or experienced shearers who wish to improve their skills.  Instructors will teach the most modern, up-to-date shearing methods.  One of the most important aspects of the school is information about maintenance and care of sheep shearing equipment.

The school will start at 10:00am on Friday April 20, with registration.  At 10:30 AM there will be a discussion of equipment care and maintenance and at 1:00 PM we will start shearing.  On Saturday April 21 at 8:00AM we will continue with the hands-on shearing instruction.  The course will continue until all sheep are sheared (usually by noon).
The cost for the Shearing School is $150 per person. In order to make plans, pre-registration is required. Participation is limited to the first 20 paid applicants.  Complete the form below and return to the address shown.  If you have questions, please email or call Mark Powell at 615-519-7796; shepherdboy1@yahoo.com  or call Warren Gill at 615-478-3828
