Tennessee Livestock Center, Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) Campus, Murfreesboro
Tennessee Sheep Shearing School

The school is sponsored by the Tennessee Sheep Producers Association, Tennessee Farmers Cooperative, 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. Top sheep shearers 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 18, 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 19, at 8:00 am we will continue until all sheep are sheared.

The cost for the Shearing School is $125 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 call Warren Gill at (615) 898-2404.
