A compact Automatic Wool Farm with shear refill that can supply a decently sized server.
It houses 256 sheep (16 colors x 16 sheep per color) and produces just over 1000 wool per color per hour for a total of 16,000 wool per hour. This takes the full day-and-night cycle of Minecraft into account: Since grass spreads slower at night (even with light sources around) the farm runs slower which reduces the average rate. If you sleep through the nights, the rate goes up to 1200 wool per color per hour for a total of 19,200 wool per hour.
Note: Those numbers were obtained using gnembon's Carpet Mod in a creative singleplayer world that contains only the sheep farm. Therefore, those rates were determined under optimal conditions. Especially on SMP servers your mileage may vary: I built this farm on the PMC 10 Year Anniversary Server and get around 700 wool per color and hour.
A little bit of efficiency was sacrificed for a more compact and easy to use farm. Unfortunately, this also increased the material cost from one observer to two observers per sheep. In the world download I have included an example for a sheep holding cell that only uses one observer which makes the build less expensive but also less compact and it uses redstone dust, which I personally try to avoid if possible.
The download includes schematics for the full farm as well as a single farm cell and a 16 sheep array. So you can up- or downscale the farm to fit your needs.
Feel free to download and use this build however you like, but please give credit if you do :)
btw you can make it toggable if you put repeaters betwen the dispensers so if you make a big area for all farms or want to turn it off for some reason.
you can very easily do it by just swaping the torches betwen dispensers with repeaters and conect them

|https://www.minecraft-schematics.com/schematic/16686/ the most productive and optimized wool farm built to run on servers! this farm is compact and autonomous with automatic switching off and on after wool harvesting, I tested it on servers, it showed its performance and reliability, I just wanted to show you what I did based on your farm.

|Awesome design, worked no problem. And just as importantly: THANK YOU for putting every type of file i could think to work with - world, schem, litematica, schematic.. You couldn't make it easier. I guess you could've included a baritone save, but who the hell needs that for schematics?
