Southern Tier Wool Pool

This is your last chance before next summer to clean out your barns of wool:

"August 19, 2015

Dear Shepherd,

The Southern Tier Sheep & Wool Growers Annual Wool Pool will take place on Friday, September 11 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 12, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 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 again 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.

Small producers may want to combine their truck loads of wool to reduce the transportation costs. 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.
