Southern Tier Wool Pool

Postby friskylamb » Mon Sep 02, 2013 6:55 pm

The Southern Tier Wool Pool will be held this Friday and Saturday, September 6 & 7. Here's the text of this year's letter sent out to members:

"Dear Shepherd,

The Southern Tier Sheep & Wool Growers Annual Wool Pool will take place on Friday, September 6 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 7, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The pool will be accepting wool both days at the Otsego County Fair Grounds, Morris, NY.

The wool will be separated into two categories: good clean wool and off-sorts/short wool. We will be accepting naturally colored wool this year.

We will refuse to accept any wool showing evidence of plastic twine or ragged plastic, or wool brought to the pool in fiberglass feed bags. We also will not accept wet wool. Any wool contaminated with wood shavings, moths (or castings), grain, burdocks, sheep keds or lice, skin pieces, rodent excrements, or excessive vegetable matter will be placed in the off-sorts category or may be rejected.

When you arrive please sign in at the front desk to receive you unloading number, we will also be checking to make sure we have your correct information. If you are bringing wool for more than one producer, please make are you have their complete address so we can send out the check.

For more information or directions please contact Sue Smith at (607) 293-8810. Remember the Wool Pool is an all volunteer effort so please do your part.
