Urepele – Shearing with machine


Shepherds near the mountains of Urepele, work in community to shear their sheeps. In this case, we attended to a shearing session of a flock of 200 sheep, invited by their owner, Mixel Menta. After the legs of the sheep are tied to facilitate the shearing, a shaver with a movable arm, powered by electricity from a generator,  makes the first cuts to facilitate the next stage of shearing with scissors.
