Mr Manton (a.k.a-Jason) came to school to teach us about all the different fleeces in the wool industry. The fleeces were Crossbread, Medium and Superfine.
Mr Manton is a shearer and a lamb marker. He said he normally would shear 300 sheep by himself in a day and he would shear 500 sheep in a day with 3 shearers. He owns 2000 grown sheep and 500 lambs. He shears about 3 times a year on his own farm and goes away to shear at other peoples farms. Mr Manton told us that soon he will retire from shearing. We are very thankful that he came to teach us about wool, himself and his farm.
