How many sheep can I shear

by Smart Shearing

How many sheep can I shear before changing the comb and cutter?

This depends on a number of factors, including:

• Breed of sheep / openness of fleece.
• Whether sticky/greasy.
• Sand/grit in the fleece.
• Correct setting up of handpiece.
• Frequency of oiling comb and cutter.

The range would be from less than 5, if shearing sandy sheep, up to 50 in good conditions on open wool sheep.
