Alpaca Shearers for California

In no particular order.

 In general, it's a good idea to set up your shearing in January, to ensure that you are booked with the shearer of your choice.  Shearing usually takes place between late March and mid-June--most of us shear in April and May in California.  

Except where indicated, this is not an endorsement of any shearer, but simply a list I've compiled because I am so frustrated when alpaca owners call in June and wonder how to get their animals shorn for heat control.


We use Brian Gnizak of Shear Relief, LLC (formerly with BioSecure--see below)

 Book with Brian (big improvement!) at 330-317-6135 or and on

Facebook.  Comes out from Midwest with team of 4, so his schedule is tight!


Also to get a team out from the Midwest.  They start their scheduling in January on line.Or Google "Biosecure Alpaca Shearing").

(Please ignore the blue highlights--I can't get rid of it and don't know where it came from!)
