Feel free to call with any questions or concerns:
At ShearingAlpaca.com, our goal is to make you happy.
Shearing Day is a necessary part of every alpaca breeders
year, but it need not be exhausting or stressful.
ShearingAlpaca.com is setting the standard in alpaca
shearing across the country.
The first to bring biosecurity to
the field, John, Brian, Micah, Ben and their crews,
disinfect between farms and arrive at your farm with clean
boots and equipment
need to be dry, penned and accessible when our crew arrives.
Our trained crew members do all of the major handling
for you, reducing the risk of injury to the
animals as well as their owners. Not only will your blankets
be taken off in one piece w/minimal second cuts,
but your animals will cleaned up as well,
no alpaca left behind...
We have 4 four man crews this year, meaning we provide one
shearer and 3 helpers. Our guys bring their own restraints
and mats which are disinfected between farms. In most
will run two shearing stations. We will also have a 2 man
crew available for small farms.
Owners should be prepared to take care of their fiber, and
should enlist all the help they will need
for bagging and
sorting fleece as well as help for cleanup.
Fiber Sorting crews have worked with us before,
but if they are new to sorting, please let us know
so we can allow additional time on scene. We also
would appreciate knowing if there are more
than a few "special" hairdos on the agenda.
Our standard show quality cuts look like the picture below:
The guys enjoy
shearing and will shear large groups of alpaca, llamas, and the occasional
sheep. (Most sheep are done outside of the alpaca shearing season, so we
don't have to mix equipment.) We really don't mind travelling, but we
prefer to group you with others in your area. We do charge a $50 set up
fee per farm. This helps to cover some of our travel and lodging
expenses and makes it more likely that we will come out to your area if
there are several farms willing to use us.
Ask about our money saving options.
