Video: Fearnley Davies demonstrates sheep shearing

Fearnley Davies of Tweed, Ontario, demonstrated how to shear sheep at the O'Hara Mill Heritage Day on July 22, 2012. He used shears powered by turning a wheel. There is a great shortage  of sheep shearer in Ontario. You need a strong back to shear sheep. If you are interested in learning how to do it, please contact Harvest Hastings and we will put you in touch with Fearnley Davies.
