Chris is very professional, and while he is quick and efficient, he takes the time to look at each animal. He points out any potential problems that under normal circumstances you might not see or be aware of. This past May, I was really impressed how Chris handled the swarm of vet students that showed up to help. The students really wanted to be hands on, and Chris took the time to show them how to help hold, explained procedures, and worked with them the entire day.
I have sorted/graded fiber for the past few years at a farm where Chris Hatch is the shearer. The fiber has always been shorn with a good size blanket that avoided belly fiber and had minimal if any second cuts. It has made my job so much easier!!!
Chris & Jody run a very professional operation, with Jody handling the bookings in a professional and organized manner and Chris doing a great job shearing the animals. I have used Chris for over five years, first he was just doing our cria shearing during the summer and now he shears our whole herd which was as high as 120 animals. Very pleased!
Professional, Quality Shearing Service
Chris approaches each farm just as he approaches the students in his classroom. Expectations of how the day will operate are set with direction, patience, and teachable moments.
