Event Navigation

Registration is closed. The class is full. Please write to Elaine Fortin at efortin@nullcomcast.net if you want to be on the wait list. One seat has been reserved as a scholarship for VSGA members under 18 years old. If no one applies by April 30th, that seat will be available to the first person on the wait list.

The focus of the school is to help train producers, wool industry and interested people about wool quality and classing. In addition, to assist in improving the quality of the domestic wool clip, which is imperative to American wool being more competitive and available in the international as well as domestic markets. Topics to be covered include wool fiber growth, development and production, objective measurement of wool and hands-on wool grading, to name a few.

Friday and Sunday will be in the classroom. Saturday we will travel to a nearby farm where some 20 sheep will be sheared and their fleeces classed by us together.
