About the event
2019 Tennessee Sheep Shearing School
The 2019 Tennessee Sheep Shearing School will be held on April 26 and 27, 2019, 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 26, 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 27 at 8:00AM we will continue with the hands-on shearing instruction. The course will continue until all sheep are sheared (usually by noon).
