The shearing school is a great opportunity for producers and aspiring shearers alike to learn about the equipment and techniques used by professional shearers, and get hands-on instruction in handling and shearing live sheep. No experience is necessary to attend this very affordable one-day event; all that is required is a strong back and willingness to learn.

Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival
-The Midwest's Premier Sheep and Wool Festival
-September 5-7, Jefferson, WI
It is a competitive show and the event itself has lots to offer both youth and adults….stock dog trials, fiber art classes, the annual WSBC Shepherd’s Auction and Used Equipment Auction, a Friday night fish fry and a Saturday night lamb barbeque, a photo contest, a large fleece show and auction, Youth Sweepstakes Contest, and of course sheep shows—open show, junior show, and open market lamb show! The open market lamb show offers a $400 jackpot for the champion market lamb, $200 for the reserve market lamb, and $50 for each breed champion. If you have some good state fair lambs that don’t make it to the coliseum auction floor—consider holding them for this show! Take a few moments to check out this event and consider making your entries by August 15th!
