A polypay sheep produces an average 9.9 pounds of wool annually. This wool is cleaned, spun into yarn and then packaged into skeins of 175 yards of yarn each. One pound of wool makes 12.50 miles of yarn. If farmer Bill has a flock of 150 polypay sheep, to the nearest thousand skeins, how many skeins of yarn is his flock expected to produce in one year?
