Southern Tier Sheep & Wool Growers Annual Wool Pool

Postby friskylamb » Sun Jun 28, 2015 8:39 am

Hi! List,

Last chance to clear out your barns of wool before winter.

The 2015 Southern Tier Sheep & Wool Growers Annual Wool Pool will be held Friday, September 11th from 12:00PM to 4:00PM and Saturday, September 12th from 8:00AM to 3:00PM, at the Otsego County Fair Grounds in Morris, NY. Prices per pound last year were as follows:

- white wool: $0.7148
- white off-sorts: $0.4132
- naturally colored wool: $0.1510

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 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.

You can bring any number of fleeces, from one to a thousand. All are welcome.

The wool pool is a buying cooperative, run by volunteers. No one makes any money there except you, the producers. There is no middleman.

The wool pool is also a social event. Come and sell your fleeces and also talk sheep with other flock owners. Refreshments will be provided. It's fun.

For more information call Sue Smith at (607) 293-8810.

See you there.
