Servicing Multiple States

Mike Snow (AABA Member Referred)
Servicing Qld, NSW, VIC, TAS, SA
Mike has been shearing alpacas for over 15 years and travels to you whether you have 2 alpacas or 200+. Shearing is done on tables and is quick and as stress free as possible.  Mike can also do vaccinations, worming, toenail trimming and ear tagging.

Bernie resides in Goulburn NSW and travels north throughout Qld, then south through NSW and Vic each year beginning mid August.   Shearing is done on his own tables and is quick and as stress free as possible.  He also does nails, teeth if necessary, injections if needed and anything else you feel needs attention.

Joe Hofer
Riverina, NSW and North East Victoria
Service also includes skirting the fleece, bagging and labeling and an honest opinion on what the fleece is suitable for (eg will make a great garment, outer wear only, rug weaving or the fruit trees are in need of mulch!!). We also do some vaccinations if needed. We only travel for 10 animals or more (we encourage those who have less than 10 to contact other alpaca owners in their area to get as many together at the one place to make travelling an option). We do any number at our place at any time that suits both parties.

Chris Power
Central Coast
Shear mainly Nowra, Goulburn/Crookwell, Orange/Bathurst/Wellington and Central Coast, but will travel most places for larger herds over 200. Alpaca shearer for 13 years as at the end of 2011, I also bring a person to help me tip the alpacas on their sides.  I shear on a padded mat on the floor and use all my own equipment, but you must provide shade/cover/shed as I will not shear in the sun.
Average between 85 to 100 per day, will shear smaller lots if you can arrange others to fit in around your area, lots of 2-10 will have to get them to a central area.

Drew Shearman
Sydney to Grafton and as far out as Mudgee and Tamworth.
I shear sheep, goats and alpacas. I have been shearing now for just over 5 years. I carry my own plant at all times which consists of both battery and electric gear and all the equipment to shear, drench, vaccinate, crutch and trim hooves. I currently can shear between 35–50 alpacas a day and have a number of different ways in which I can shear depending on the animals and how the owner would like the fleece removed, as in show cuts and saddles in one piece. I can mark both lambs and goats if needed and have a lot of experience with animal care and animal husbandary products and procedures. I will travel for any number of animals and don’t mind shearing single animals or small mobs. If anyone requires further information or has any enquiries please don’t hesitate to give me a call.

Keith Kat (AABA Member)
Servicing Greater Melbourne, Gippsland, East Gippsland & South Gippsland
I have been shearing alpacas for more than 5 years now and loving it. When shearing I want your alpacas to look beautiful when they come off the table. I provide shearing tables so that it is easy on our backs. I do nails, teeth, drenches, innoculation and always shear saddles first.  I can provide a roustabout if required. I also try and fit the shearing of your animals into your timetable. I also provide a generator if paddock shearing is preferred.
