The Southern Tier Sheep and Wool Growers annual Wool Pool will take place Friday, September 6, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, September 7, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Otsego County Fair Grounds in Morris, N.Y.
The pool will be accepting white and naturally colored wool this year. The wool will be separated into two categories: good clean wool and off-sorts/short wool.
The wool pool is more than a place to sell your wool. It is a place to see old and new friends and to network with other shepherds about rams, ewes, equipment and markets.
When you shear, or if you have already shorn, try to keep your wool clean and dry. Store it out of the sun and away from vegetable matter and polypropylene.
If you have any questions or are looking for more information, please contact Sue Smith at 607-293-8810.
