Being free of multiple neck folds and body wrinkle, the plain-bodied Blyth Merinos are always shearers’ first choice over traditional Merinos. As an example: 253 Blyth Merino hoggets were shorn in a first run by 5 experienced shearers. In 2018 two shearers shore 560 Merino wether hoggets in an 8 hour day.
From the numerous shearer training schools Blyth Merinos has conducted in collaboration with Riverina TAFE over the last 25 years, many young shearers have been welcomed back to shear in our shed.
The clip below shows the ease of shearing with 6 months wool from Blyth 0884 Sire.
