We have confirmed our shearing day of 19th October, 2019 with Drew Shearman.
If you would like your alpacas sheared on this day please ensure the following;
Visit Drew’s website and book in your date. He will be coming to Laguna-Cessnock area on 19th October so if you are on this route, please contact him now before his time slots book out. https://www.shearmanlivestock.com.au
Confirm costs with Drew including any additional services such as your annual 5:1 vaccinations, worming and nail trimming.
Have a small alpaca enclosure ready. Ensure Drew is not chasing the alpacas on the day. This will result in additional cost (and stress) to you, the alpacas and will also delay Drew in his back to back farm visits. So be prepared!
Ensure you have cash to pay Drew on the day. He can always invoice you later.
Once the alpacas have been shorn, keep them out of the hot sun for a couple of days to avoid sun burn.
Keep your fleece, use the saddle for felting, spinning or making cushion infills. Use the scrappy leg fleece as garden mulch.
Rain or hail we shear so make sure you have some decent undercover for Drew and his equipment.
