Clean Shears at the Woolorama

I’m into my new book called The Cleanest Cut and went to the Woolorama especially to watch the clean shears and gain some knowledge for the book.

Cheers to Julene and Jason for introducing me to Nigel Reid who gave me the lowdown on the clean shears and how the points work, etc.

It was greatly appreciated seeing as Nigel was soon off to shear in the Open.

He’s in the red singlet and was the first to bung out his starting sheep in around a minute and eight seconds.

I really enjoyed watching the shearing and came away happy and confident to continue with the book.

For all interested our winner in the Open was Mark Buscomb who did his 10 sheep in a time of 14.52 and an overall score of 64.80.
