TAFESA conducted their first shearing and wool handling school for the year at Nadda, via Loxton, in the Mallee last week, the start of more than 20 to be held across SA over the coming months.

Students learnt a variety of skills, including the handling and shearing of sheep, wool throwing, skirting and classing.

There were eight students participating at the Hampel Farm at Nadda when Stock Journal visited last Thursday.

Brian Hampel said they were keen to host the course on-farm because of a need in the local area for trained shearers.
