Dessemination of Low Cost Sheep Hair Shearing Device

Currently in most of the places, the shepherds use scissors. The scissors need to be sharpened at regular interval. As we have analyzed there are problems associated with its sharpness, grip, and mere time requirement for shearing and pain to the person’s hand who is using it. The machine was developed in IIT DELHI is cost effective, compact and fulfills the torque requirements. So, the device reduced the shearing time from 30 minutes per sheep to 4 minutes only. The target is on the standardization and indigenous manufacturing.
