2023 Tennessee Sheep Shearing School

Learn to Shear!

The 2023 Tennessee Sheep Shearing School will be held on April 7 and 8, 2023, 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. School will start with registration at 10:00am on Friday April 8. 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 9 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 $ 225 per person . In order to make plans, pre-registration is required. Participation is limited to the first 20 paid applicants.
