Mark Loeffen researched and prepared a technical review (white paper) for us to document the techniques that had been tested for shearing the wool of live lambs. Our ultimate objective, which we have since achieved, was to improve animal welfare by developing a new line shearing process to remove the wool from the animals after they are slaughtered. Mark's report provided a solid starting point to help us develop the new process by showing us what had already been done and what had not been done. We engaged Mark to carry out the technical review as he was a recognised world expert in this field. We found him to be very knowledgeable and a very good person to work with. If he says he will do something he will do it and you know he will always perform a very good job.
