Shearing Services

LASS Sheep & Alpaca Shearing Services

Shearing is an important part of keeping your sheep and alpacas healthy. Long fleece increases the risk of flystrike, heat stroke and the fleece becomes very heavy to carry around when it gets wet.

Sheep and alpacas require shearing AT LEAST once a year. Shearing should be carried out between October and November before the summer months. Sheep usually require a pre-winter shear between April and June.

Our experienced and professional shearers have all been hand picked. We pride ourselves on our ability to handle animals in a way that is gentle and imposes minimal stress. Get to know our shearers better by clicking here.
