UK sheep farms are small, having on average approximately 350 sheep. UK sheep are raised naturally outdoors on pasture. As a result, the scale and method of UK lamb production is such that it is not considered an ‘intensive’ farming activity by animal welfare campaigning bodies.
Sheep are required to be shorn of their wool once a year for their own comfort and health. Hence, wool is a naturally occurring by-product. Every year British Wool puts over a thousand people in all parts of the UK through two day shearing training courses that are tailored to their existing level of experience and skill. It goes without saying that shearing in accordance with best industry standards ensures that the process is stress free for the animal (as well as maximizing the value of producers’ wool).
