Used Equipment: Time to declutter, downsize, or just unload fiber and barn equipment you are no longer using? While doing all of that would you like to make some cash, too? The New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Festival (NHSWF) is having a ‘used equipment’ tent once again. Fiber equipment and barn equipment, (feeders, panels, etc.) that are clean and in good shape can find new homes and be put to use once again. The used equipment tent will be set up both Saturday and Sunday. A 10% commission will be paid to the NHSWF.
