This week we’ve heard about sheep with hair not wool as a way around having to spend money on shearing. The Wairere bred sheep are being trialled at the moment. The other popular non shearing sheep is the Wiltshire and the drop in wool prices has sparked greater interest in these self-shedding sheep. Massey Professor Steve Morris says his team of researchers are looking at that breed and whether the Wiltshire is worthwhile when it comes to the meat it provides.
