Sheep shearing is the process by which the woollen fleece of a sheep is clip off. The person who removes the sheep’s wool is called a shearer. Typically each adult sheep is shorn later than each year (a sheep may be said to have been “shorn” or “sheared”, depending upon dialect). The annual shearing most often occurs in a shearing shed, a capacity especially expected to process often hundreds and sometimes on height of 3,000 sheep per day.

Sheep are shorn in whatever seasons, depending on the climate, management requirements and the availability of a woolclasser and shearers. Ewes are normally shorn prior to lambing in the warmer months, but consideration is typically made as to the welfare of the lambs by not shearing during chilly climate winters. However, in high country regions, pre lamb shearing encourages ewes to ambition shelter in the middle of the hillsides correspondingly that newborn lambs aren’t completely exposed to the elements. Shorn sheep undertake frosts well, but juvenile sheep especially will torment yourself in cold, wet windy weather (even in Cool climate summers). In this business they are shedded for several nights until the weather clears. Some sheep may next be shorn considering stud combs commonly known as cover combs which leave more wool on the animal in colder months, giving greater protection.
