Shearing requires attention to a few details before the shearers arrive, as they shear your sheep, and long after the shearing crew is gone. In this video, NCAT Livestock Specialist Dave Scott discusses factors to take into account before, during, and after shearing: tips for encouraging sheep to go into the shearing race, the responsibilities of the shepherd, and the ewes’ needs post shearing. There is much more to it than just “getting the wool off.” The video takes place during shearing at Dave's Montana Highland Lamb operation near Whitehall, MT.
