Alpaca Shearing Testimonials
"When Covid hit the USA in 2020, livestock needed to be shorn. Farmers were scrambling for a shearer since the Aussies could not leave for the Americas, leaving 20,000 alpacas as the overage that our local shearers absorbed, doing their best to accommodate the need, and scheduling far into the late summer. I was in need of a shearer. It was now June and I found a diamond. Neil Kessler of Appalachian Custom Shearing. He brought help that was also very experience in handling livestock. They handled the alpaca with safety keeping the experience stress free for the animal. The skillfulness with fiber removal was a clean shave with no second cuts, and first, seconds, and thirds separated. The toes were trimmed as the teeth if needed. I have referred him to many farms that were very satisfied with his handling of the animal, scheduling, communication, and reliability. I look forward to this year's shearing. Thank you Neil for being there."
