Pile of sheared wool

Wool collected on “Sheep Shearing Day”

The Franklin County Cooperative Extension’s “Women in Agriculture” Fiber Tour will take place on Friday, August 18th, beginning with a tour of our 4-H 4-County Livestock Show in Bunn, where the majority of the animals showing are wool-type sheep. You will be able to learn from the judge what good wool should look like on the live animal. Bring a lawn chair, since we will watch and support our young people for about one hour. After speaking with the judge, we will travel to Youngsville to see a new fiber processing facility that takes raw wool from the sheep and turns it into valuable wool. We will have lunch near Youngsville, at Olive Garden, and then travel to the Alert community/Centerville to see an Alpaca Farm and visit their gift shop at 2 p.m. (bring money).

The van will leave the Franklin County Extension Center in Louisburg at 9:30 a.m. (the show starts at 10 a.m.) and will return around 3 – 3:30 p.m. If you want to ride in the van, please call the office at 919-496-3344 or email martha_mobley@ncsu.edu. “Women in Agriculture” will not meet in September.
