Career - Shearing Shed Hand

I need assistance to choose
Shearing Shed Hands will assist station hands to pen sheep for shearing and will pick up the fleece after it is removed from the sheep and throw it onto a large table for 'skirting' (process to remove stained or coloured pieces and skin from the wool). They will remove inferior and stained wool from fleeces as directed by a wool classer and will grade wool that has been skirted off fleeces. They will roll the fleece into bundles and pass it to a wool classer for classing and sweep the shed floor around the shearing and wool handling areas to help keep the fleeces clean and to avoid contamination. They will identify and remove belly wool from the shearing area and place in relevant packs.
