British Wool launches shearing courses with strong response


British Wool has rolled out its much-anticipated shearing courses, now accessible on their website, generating enthusiastic feedback from eager participants. Renowned globally, these courses cater to diverse skill levels, offering tailored instruction from novice (Blue Seal) to expert (Gold Seal) stages.

With an aim to enhance flock shearing proficiency, foster career pathways, and prepare participants for top-tier global competitions, the curriculum addresses multifaceted objectives. 

Available nationwide, the one-day on-farm training sessions cover the spectrum from novices to seasoned shearers traversing international circuits. Led by seasoned instructors, over 100 courses are slated from April to August, spanning two days each, drawing over 800 attendees last year.

A key highlight is the extension of exclusive training opportunities to young farmers, irrespective of prior experience, with a generous 50 per cent discount on shearing courses throughout their membership tenure. 

Richard Schofield, Shearing Manager, expressed gratitude for the collaboration with Young Farmers Clubs (YFC), underscoring the pivotal role of members in nurturing the UK's shearing talent pool.
