After 12 years of sheep shearing as a "hobby" my wife and I decided to form Cunningham Sheep Shearing and make it my full-time work. I have a passion for shearing sheep and serving producers. If you are the owner of a flock, large or small, I would appreciate the opportunity to shear for you this year. Please call or text: CunninghamSheepShearing gmail.

Sheep shearing - Wikipedia
Sheep shearing is the process by which the woollen fleece of a sheep is cut off. The person who removes the sheep's wool is called a shearer. Typically each adult sheep is shorn once 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 facility especially designed to process often hundreds and sometimes more than 3, sheep per day. Sheep are shorn in all 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 cold climate winters.
