IN the agricultural areas of this State it is customary to shear in the late winter or spring, usually some time between July and September.
In an experiment conducted at Muresk Agricultural College during the past two years it has been shown that shearing in autumn (March) has resulted in more wool being produced with higher returns than when shearing at the conventional time.
