The best sheep shearers, wool pressers and wool handlers put it all on the line for the title in the Shearing and Woolhandling Championship each year. In 2023 the event will be on 2,3 and 4 March.
Held at the War Memorial Stadium in Masterton, people flock to it (get it… sheep joke!) from all over to get a glimpse of speed shearing at its best.
The four day event encompasses novice, junior, intermediate, senior and open shearing competitions along with junior, senior and open wool handling events and singles wool pressing competitions, as well as the coveted triathlon award.
