I offer a traditional sheep shearing service in Somerset and surrounding areas (Bath, Bristol, Wiltshire and Devon). I use traditional hand shears and can shear up to 80 sheep in a day but we also arrange machine shearing. Hand shearing is slightly slower but much more peaceful for the sheep and shearer. Slightly more wool is left on the sheep which offers a bit of cover. This is ideal for pre-lamb shearing and great if the weather is still a bit cold. There are a growing number of blade shearers and it is easy for us to arrange larger mobs to be shorn.
