Competitions / sheep sheering
Sheep Shearing is one of the most celebrated activities in Australian agricultural history and iconic part of our cultural legacy. These kinds of competitions help to preserve shearing traditions and educate the broader public. The first authenticated tally of sheep shorn in a single day was 30 sheep by a blade shearer in 1835. By 1892 the record stood at 321 sheep, and from there records continued to tumble with WA recording its biggest wool clip of 231,000,000 kg in 1986.
