Ballyhoo Shearapalooza!

  • Ballyhoo Farm 2410 Christianburg-Cropper Road Bagdad, KY, 40003 United States (map)

Watch the fleeces come off and learn about the wool process! We will be shearing all day, both days, weather permitting. As the fleeces are collected, they will be spread out on the skirting table and assessed, bagged up and labeled, and moved to the Emporium! We will also do routine care on each animal: FAMACHA check, hoof trimming, and overall health assessments. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about sheep handling and management, wool production, and just hang out on the farm! The Emporium will be open.

Event weather dependent; stay tuned in case of changes.
