Mendocino County Coopertive Extension-2023/2024 Sheep Shearing School & Wool Class Interest Survey


Time to think about the UCCE Sheep Shearing School!

The UCCE Sheep Shearing School was created by UCCE Livestock & Natural Resources Advisor John M. Harper almost 28 years ago and has been hosted at many venues. For many years the venue was at the Hopland Research & Extension Center but now is back on private ranches to insure students have adequate sheep to shear. John Harper is the coordinator and one of the four instructors. This year's school(s) will be located in Clearlake Oaks, California. The primary dates are be April 22-26. If we fill that class and there is sufficient interested students we may offer another school. That school would run from April 15-19. 

Please take this brief survey to let us know if you are interested.

By completing this short survey we will be able to notify you about how to register for our next Sheep Shearing School.

Due to how popular our shearing school is, when we open up registration, it is on a first come, first in basis, but we also give preference to California and Mendocino/Lake County residents. The Wool Classing School is not difficult to get into. We may hold the Wool Classing School separate from the Shearing School so that people do both.

Cost will be $850 for the Shearing School and does not include your transportation, lodging and food. Depending on how many of you are interested, we may hold two separate schools on back-to-back weeks



Thank you for completing the survey. You will be hearing from us when decisions have been made about the 2023 Wool Classing School and 2024 Sheep Shearing School.
