Biosecure Alpaca Shearing Ltd.
Shear Relief LLC

Durer  Shearing 
and BENeficial Shearing
invite you to join us for Shearing Season 2014!

Feel free to call with any questions or concerns:

At,  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. 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

Alpacas 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 cases we 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 per farm set up fee . 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.
We do have
