Sheep shearing day at McCormack Ranch

Each spring a centuries-old tradition takes place on sheep farms in the Montezuma Hills and across the West. This year, Jeannie McCormack and Al Medvitz, operators of the historic McCormack Ranch in the Montezuma Hills, invited Solano Land Trust to observe the annual ritual of sheep shearing. Solano Land Trust holds a conservation agreement on the McCormack Ranch. As editor of Solano Land Trust publications, I got to tag along.

After reading about sheep, scroll down to read about other farmers in Solano Land Trust's "Meet the Farmer" series.
