Shearing Update 05/21/2019
Ben is currently shearing in Georgia. He has enlisted the assistance of couple of other shearers, too.
IMPORTANT: He will call you before coming out. Be sure to answer to answer the call and/or reply PROMPTLY before he moves on to the next farm. Last year, a few farms had to be rescheduled until weeks later. Why? Their voice mail was not turned on, the message box was full, or they simply failed to call back in a timely manner.

Georgia Sheep members and guests have multiple options for shearing services:
1) Paid members* have access to an experienced shearer. His fees are very reasonable, and his quality is excellent. Dr. Tom Huber (706-769-6721 or 706-614-0826) can help coordinate the shearer and sheep producers’ schedule. This shearer works in multiple states; we cannot guarantee a shearing date. Many members find the convenience of schedule coordination to be a very valuable service. See the Shearing Survey for more details.
2) Members and guests also have access to the services of three other highly experienced shearers who are members of the Georgia Sheep Association. These Georgia Sheep members are listed on the Georgia Sheep website Market Directory. Simply look up shearing services, and contact them directly.
