Shearing is nothing more than a haircut and does not hurt the animal. The wool from one sheep, referred to as a fleece, is generally removed so that it holds together in one piece. Within a week the sheep have re-grown enough wool to keep them warm. https://bit.ly/2CTslUE

 

In California, Oregon, Washington and Canada, sheep grazing in forest plantations can double the number of healthy trees and increase each tree’s growth by 30 percent compared with areas not grazed! http://bit.ly/2pb6Shw

 

DYK: 94% of sheep farms are family owned. There are more than 80,000 family farmers and ranchers caring for over 6 million sheep throughout the United States! https://bit.ly/2phtJIf
