Part 1 of a 2-part certification program
September 14-15, 2017 Red River Exhibition Park, 3977 Portage Avenue,

Wool is one of two major products derived from sheep. It comes in many forms, from fine, medium and long wool, all the way to specialty wools. The wool from each breed has unique characteristics and unique uses.
Evaluating wool requires that we look at several parts of the fleece to determine both the best characteristics as well as the degree of fault.
During this 1 ½ day course, participants will study the characteristics of the four groupings of wool, learn to recognize various faults, come to understand scoring methods and undertake practice judging and scoring. This is a valuable course for anyone producing, selling, or working with wool.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will qualify for Canadian Wool Judging Certification Level 1. These certificates will be issued by Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers.
Cost: $200 — includes an extensive manual, wool samples, and handouts
