Shearing Register - Working Together

Due to the current situation regarding Covid-19, it seems unlikely that overseas shearers will be available in the UK for the 2020 season.  British Wool have been working together with other industry organisations to fill a potential shortage of shearers and to assist contractors in putting together UK teams to ensure the flock gets shorn to prevent any unnecessary animal welfare problems.

If you are a shearer and able to assist, even if only for a day or two’s shearing, please visit the National Association of Agricultural Contractor's website so your details are listed for contractors and farmers. Shearers and farmers can also contact UK shearing contractors using the Shearing Register to offer assistance or to get shearing work completed.
