Customary spring sheep-shearing in Shibecha

May 9

Customary spring sheep-shearing was carried out on April 12 and 13 at a breeding ranch in the town of Shibecha in eastern Hokkaido. The sheep, covered in thick, fluffy wool, were sheared by ranch staff using electric clippers, resulting in a refreshingly neat appearance.

One hundred and ninety sheep – including the Suffolk variety with a black head and legs, and the Southdown variety from the UK – are reared on the ranch. Of these, apart from the newly born lambs, 160 were sheared. Each sheep took between 5 and 10 minutes to shear and produced between 2.5 to 3 kg of raw wool.
