Sheep shearing has begun at Hadlow College, our Level 2 and Level 3 Agriculture students will get hands on and gain valuable experience shearing the college flock.  Our flock comprises 600 ewes, a mix of Suffolk Crosses, Mules and pure bred Charollais.  This task will take the students all week!  With each fleece being worth 70p - 80p they will be rolled and packed and sent off to be sold.
