Coleg Cambria Llysfasi was recently host to the Heiniger workshop.  The event which attracted numerous students and others was arranged by the Allfex UK group.

During the event the spectators got to see live demonstrations by Rhys Jones of Maestruan, Corwen.  The workshop was delivered by Selwyn Williams, Research & Development Manager at Heiniger.

Following from this event Coleg Cambria Llysfasi will be hosting its annual sheep shearing competition, Llysfasi Shears and an Open Event on Saturday the 9th of June.

The Open Event will offer an exciting opportunity to explore the outstanding facilities at the site as well as to chat to tutors about the courses on offer including Agriculture, Agricultural Engineering, Animal Care and Forestry & Conservation Management.

Current Coleg Cambria Llysfasi students will also be on hand to show visitors around the site as well as offering a useful insight into college life.

Llysfasi Shears, one of the qualifying competition for the Welsh open circuits, will start at 8am.  The day will see different categories from Junior, Inter, Senior, Blade and Open competitions, with prize money available for each.  An exciting new event will be hosted this year, the wool handling competition.

The event is open to the general public with free entry for spectators, a bar and food will be available on site.

Dafydd Jones, Agricultural Lecturer at Coleg Cambria Llysfasi who’s organising Llysfasi Shears said:

“It was great to be able to work with Selwyn and the team again to host the Heiniger Workshop.  We are now busy preparing for the Llysfasi Shears, we have many competing and we will look forward to the event, which promises to be a brilliant day out for all.”
